Brief Answer:
It wont raise your blood pressure.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

In general cold should not be treated with antibiotics. It is because cold is usually caused by viruses, not bacteria. And antibiotics are ineffective agains viruses.
For sure it wont raise your blood pressure. But I do not think you need it.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
