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.
