Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Yes epistaxis is common in people with uncontrolled high blood pressure. 
Just take the medixines daily and make some diet changes. 
Lower your salt intake and exercise daily.
40 miutes of walking daily will be very helpful.
Consult a MD consultant physician in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.
