Yes: Absolutely! there are multiple medicines that can raise blood pressure. Generally any medicine that has stimulant properties can cause your BP to go up. Rarely, albuterol can cause a transient rise in blood preessure. Are you taking anything else?

Ask your doctor: Treating high BP varies. There are many medications but one size does not fit all. Many people do well with one type of medication, while others need two or three different types. Genetics also play a role, but we can all start lowering BP with low-salt diets, exercise, and losing weight. However, see your doctor as soon as possible.

The most proven meds: The most proven medications for high blood pressure are hydrochlorthiazide/chlorthalidone (diuretic), lisinopril (ACE inhibitor), and amlodipine(calcium channel blocker). "Proven" means there is extensive and accepted scientific evidence that they not only lower BP but prevent strokes, heart and kidney damage and improve survival. Many other meds in these classes are also effective and useful.
