Has anyone experienced high blood pressure while taking a cholesterol lowering medication?

Specifically pravastatin. Otherwise I’m in great health but for the last year I’ve been on pravastatin and now blood pressure is a tad high.

I’ve found a few correlations online but wondered if anyone here had experience with this and have suggestions rather than taking another pill (which I hate.)

**I know most of you aren’t doctors, so no worries.
