Your blood pressure should be better off of prednisone, but still may be high. You may have a tendency to have high blood pressure that was merely brought out by the prednisone. Prednisone can increase blood pressure by causing the retention of salt and water. But weight gain caused by prednisone may also increase your blood pressure. If your blood pressure increase was caused by salt and water retention, then I would expect your blood pressure to improve over the next few weeks.
