My blood pressure was 113 and then it went up to 158 because I went on some medication?

Do you believe that my blood pressure went up bcause of my medication or the blood pressure meds quit working--this is ironic because they mysteriously stopped working right when I went on the drugs.

  • Sometimes other medicines can cause other meds to not work probably. I would recommend talking to your doctor about it.

  • There are lots of medications that should be avoided if you have high blood pressure. Most of the over the counter meds, and lots of prescription meds too. You didn't mention which medication you took, but you should definitely mention it to your doctor.
