I am on meds for high bp, chronic pain (Norco), and Ativan. I am having panic attacks and depression, but I also am grieving the loss of a son. I am afraid to start yet another med. I'm worried about the blood pressure and this med making me feel anxious. I'm not convinced that the depression isn't grief related. Has anyone taken this med that has high bp? Any insite will be appreciated.
My blood pressure is normally a bit above normal (140-150 over 89-99). Benzos like ativan and xanax definently help to lower it. For the anxiety part, you probably need a stronger benzodiazepine, such as xanax or even kolonopin. It would probably help alot more with your anxiety. Kolonopin makes me more depressed though than other benzodiazepines- I would just try to switch to Xanax from Ativan. Also, sorry to hear about your son. He is in my prayers.
