Why can't people with high blood pressure take certain medicine?

So If ur on a hbp med why does it say not to take certain meds? What happens does it speed up the heart or block ingredients in the meds?

Certain medications may increase your heart rate, which will in turn make your BP higher, such as ventolin (a drug used to treat asthma or COPD). If you are taking blood pressure medicine, there may even be interactions between different drugs. So if you have high blood pressure. I suggest you first discuss with your Dr whether you should be put on a medication, and then, if you would need another medication, always notify your Dr that you have high blood pressure and what medication you are on (but your dr should have asked you before he prescribes, hehe)
