That is exactly what it did to me. My heart rate was past 100 every time I took my reading. Its horrible for asthma and causes poor breathing. My blood pressure stayed high. 140/98 was the lowest it woud go and that is not healthy even with the new blood pressure rating chart. I was taken off of it.
Since Lisinopril is meant to lower your BP, these are not good side effects for you. The instructions on both drugs say your BP must be taken often. Look below your question to see the links to information about both drugs. If you don't find the links, simply look up each drug on Drugs.com. By looking at contraindications with each drug you may spot a conflict between ANY of your meds and medical problems. Don't just look at the Effexor, but keep in mind all meds that you are taking and possible contraindications.
What you're describing is probably an increase in BP and that's exactly what you don't want. Please call your Dr. ASAP and ask your question about this. Do not fool around or simply worry, because a high BP is dangerous. Please ACT now or asap by contacting your Dr. If you know someone or somewhere with a quality BP machine, get your BP 1st and then contact your Dr.
If this was me, and the symptoms don't go away, I'd not take any Lisinopril until I contacted my Dr. and got his/her instructions. I am not a Dr., just a medical professional with experience, so this is only my opinion and the decision rests with you. Best wishes and be safe.
