frequent urination

i have increased blood pressure, thus i frequently urinate in the night. Can the high BP be the cause as i also take blood pressure tablets.

High blood pressure will not increase the urine frequency, but yes, the BP medications such as water pills or diuretics can. Not all BP medications increase urine frequency, so ask your doctor if your medication is causing increased frequency.
Other causes of increased frequency are diabetes mellitus, (high blood sugar), diabetes insipidus, urinary tract infection and prostate enlargement (in males).
Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
