In brief: Varies

diuretics are very common.
Any other medication? Nephroparhy with potassium loss. Some adrenal issues. Need full history and exams and imaging

If you have HTN the most likely cause is a tumor on the adrenal gland making too much aldosterone. Ask your team to measure an aldosterone/renin ratio if you have HTN.

many causes. Most common diuretics for HIGH BP.
Many causes of high BP are also associated with low K. See your team or consult with me for second opinion.
