PICO question help

  1. 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

    I'm more concerned about meditation controlling blood pressure levels rather than its symptoms. Please let me know what you think about it.

    In adult patients with hypertension, is meditation effective, in comparison to antihypertnesive medication, in reducing elevated blood pressure?

    Good question tweak it to read
    In Patients with hypertension (P) is meditation (I) vs taking medication (C) as effective in controlling hypertension levels(O)?

    Do you have a time period you are looking at results? If so tag it on the end.

    Also looking for PICO help. My initial thoughts were preventing overdose of opioids by using pain contracts, family education, starting a screening tool to help identify those at high risk for misuse and overdose, and possibly using intranasal narcan if needed. Please help me come up with question
