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

Asked by KNOWITALL (15285points) March 17th, 2014

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.)

*Cholesterol runs in the family.

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