Please any info would be much appreciated . Thank
Is your doctor aware of your BP diagnosis? In a few users antidepressants (yes, venlafaxine/Effexor is a SSNRI class antidepressant) can aggravate or precipitate hypo/hypermanic episodes.
Too bad that it did that to me because otherwise it was a wonderful drug that worked like a charm.
Best wishes to you! I hope this will give you relief too.
