    Can anyone check my PICO question. Please give me feeback. Should I change anything?

    In patients with hypertension, is meditation as good as medications in controlling the incidence high blood pressure levels?

    P: Patients with hypertension
    I: Medications
    C: Meditation
    O: Controlling blood pressure levels
