Does Fluoxetine raise blood pressure?

I'm a 33 year old female and have been diagnosed with hypertension about 2 years ago. I've been taking diltiazem for about a year now and it's always kept my blood pressure around 120/85. I've also had anxiety along with this but recently my doc suggested that I try prozac to help my anxiety and although skeptical, I finally agreed to give it a try. I've been on it for about 4 weeks now and have noticed my blood pressure slowly increasing. It's now been around 140/98 and I'm wondering if this is temporary or if anyone else has had this happen to them?

People react differently to these medications in my opinion.  For me, mine actually went down, because it helped with my anxiety.  Have you been anxious about taking it?  Have you been consistent with when and how you take your BP?  There are so many factors that can affect this...why not go discuss it with your doctor to see what he/she says?  Keep us posted!
