I take BP med 1 pill a day. My blood pressure went up a little.
I've been on effexor 2 months. Anyone have the same problem?
I don't take Effexor so not speaking of personal experience ... but Effexor can cause a rise in blood pressure.
There are reports of sustained hypertension (some requiring immediate treatment). Experience with the immediate-release venlafaxine (the active ingredient contained in Effexor) showed that sustained hypertension was dose-related, increasing from 3% to 7% at 100 to 300 mg/day to 13% at doses above 300 mg/day. There are not sufficient data with the use of venlafaxine extended-release at doses above 300 mg/day to determine the incidence of sustained increases in blood pressure at these high doses.
