High & Low Blood Pressure board

I was diagnosed with high blood pressure in 1999. I am a 43 year old female. Recently I was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. The doctor told me to take over the counter iron supplements. My question is, can iron supplements make the blood pressure medicine less effective? I currently take Labatalol and Cozaar. I'm not sure if the bp medicine has made me anemic over the years. Thanks.
