I have a cold and nasal congestion has caused loss of taste. How long should this last? Can I safely take anything for it with high bp?

In brief: Yes

Saline nasal washes and OTC steroid nasal sprays, read the labels carefully and use it right.
Avoid decongestants as pseudoephedrine, (sudafed), if that doesn't help in few days, see your doctor, hopefully it isn't your blood pressure medication that's causing the congestion, good luck
