I have always wondered if there is a possible connection between certain medications, and high cholesterol levels, or if it is a myth.

It is possible, but off hand I don't know of any that known for that.

But look at the package insert with the meds.

For my very limited experience it seems that the combination of lisinopril and HCTZ will lower HDL. And doing a search on that I did some some references to that fact. But a few others indicated the opposite.
