I am a 46 y.o. female. Does Prozac raise blood pressure? Can I take Prozac with blood pressure medications? I take Hydrochorazide, Propanolol and Benazapril. I also like to have a couple glasses of wine during the evening almost everyday. I am a 46 y.o. female who is also taking generic Effexor rapid release. I do not feel like I can accomplish my household chores anymore. I am very overwhelmed with housework. I need something to not make me so afraid to clean up my messy house. I would also like to feel motivated to exercise. I weigh about 150 lbs. and I would like to weigh about 125 lbs. Can you please tell me what I should do?
Can yo please tell me if Prozac will raise the blood pressure?

Thank you for answering my question. Is it safe to take Effexor (generic) along with Propanolol? Is there any anti-depressant that I can take with my bp meds.? I am currently doctor shopping to try to find one that has bedside manners in the area where I reside. I am running out of my Effexor without anymore refills. I know that you have to wean off slowly if you stop taking them. I would like to stay on an anti-dep. for now. I do not know what to do. Any suggestions? Thank you.
Hi, i've researched the interactions between propranolol (which i'm sure you know is a beta-blocker - lowers bp) and prozac, and there are quite a few interactions. Obviously your doctor would have taken this in to consideration though so don't freak out by my findings! I would speak to your doctor though after reading this if it was me;
There have been case reports of patients stabilized on beta-blocker therapy who developed bradycardia, hypotension, and complete heart block following the addition of a SSRI (which is the prozac), subsequently requiring discontinuation of one or both agents and/or institution of a permanent pacemaker. The interaction is also corroborated by data from in vitro and clinical studies involving paroxetine and metoprolol conducted by one group of investigators.
