Good question : Both nicotine (in cigarettes) & caffeine (in coffee) have been shown to elevate blood pressure, at least for a short time during & after consuming them. This can make BP meds less effective. Smoking also has MANY other health risks (not so with caffeine) (lung & other cancers, heart disease & strokes, COPD, etc) so I strongly recommend working with your Dr on a stop smoking plan.
