I am suffering from hypertension from 20 years. Did try different medications like Amlodipine , Atenonlol , hydrochlorothiazide etc and presently on Telmesartan and chlorthalidone . Now the BP is around 140/90 mm hg. From last 8 years or so I am also having headache which usually trigger off on travel or being outdoor and sometimes after alcohol consumption. I wanted to know if I need to change my medications or is there any antihypertensives which helps to overcome this headache ? Kindly help.

Since your blood pressure is within proper control with these medication, my opinion is to not change any medicines but to look into the cause of the headache.
Get your eyes checked, get a neurologist opinion into the cause of the headache because the headache may not be related to hypertension.
Continue your medicines properly and you will be fine. And also avoid triggering factors as much as possible because migraine may be a likely cause.
