can i take blood pressure medication in influenza?

When I get flu it lasts five to seven days. If my GP puts me on strong BP medication what is the outcome of being unable to digest these tablets during this illness period? Surly with BP rising as a result of flue, plus the withdrawal of medication could result in fatality. Any GPs out there?
