NSAIDs can cause an increase in blood pressure. However, opiates can actually reduce blood pressure. I also take two different types of blood pressure medicine along with opiates for pain and I have found an additional reduction in blood pressure after starting extended release morphine. Morphine acts as a blood vessel dialator; hence, lower blood pressure.
I do take 1 Aleve per day and I have not noticed an increase in blood pressure and Aleve is an NSAID. I think that my blood pressure has stayed steady while taking Aleve because I am taking a low dose versus higher doses. I am almost certain that my blood pressure would go up if I were taking a higher dose of NSAIDs.
Hope that helps.
