most asthma meds will raise blood pressure. it's sometimes quite the trick to balance the need for those meds and keeping your bp under control. Try adding potassium rich foods to your diet, get rid of the herbal diuretics. Drink at least two liters of water a day. Potassium is the best natural diuretic there is. this site will give you a list.
