Omeprazole is a Proton Pump Inhibitor, used to help reduce the amount of acid your stomach produces to treat conditions such as heartburn and GERD.

That said, there is nothing listed about it doing this.

It is always a possiblity, though, medications do affect everyone differently, but there is no way to say for sure.

Have you asked your doctor about it?

Theoretically, it definitely could. You see, nitric oxide is a substance that the body creates and that regulates blood pressure. It can only be created in the presence of an acidic stomach. Reducing acid in the stomach definitely decreases nitric oxide production and, therefore, can increase blood pressure.

See this page to see how reducing acid in the stomach can cause these sorts of problems.
