Hi- same thing happened to me!  I was on xanax for 6 years and when I came off about 13 months ago my blood pressure went up.  i have been on a mild blood pressure med ever since.  I don't mind though - much rather be on the blood pressure medication than addicted to xanax.  Don't play with it though  - make sure you get to a doctor, as this can be dangerous!

Not sure what you were taking, but you might want to talk to your doctor about clonipin..a BP med that also helps with withdrawal symtpoms.

Bingo! My bp had been running around 170/90's and may be starting to respond to Norvasec and atenolol......its initially an abstinence thing, but depending on your length and level of use you may want to keep a diary and consult Doc/Cardiologist if necessary..
