Steroids and raised blood pressure: quick question

dh was on oral prednisolone for about 6 days, finished about a week ago - now on antibiotics for tooth infection (but doubt thats relevent). He usually has quite low BP, but went to GP about his asthma yesterday and it was a bit high - just took it at home, its 157/90. Very high for him.

Does anyone know if the effects of the steroids could still be causing this? If so, we'll wait a few more days - otherwise, I want him to see GP again asap!

could you ask NHS direct? what did GP say?
