Gabepentin cause high blood pressure
I have another post further below that wasn't getting responses that i added this one to so i just thought id start a new one for just this one question.  
I'm prescribed as one of my anxiety medications 3,600 and have really high blood pressure for my age
144/81
I've heard gabepentin can cause heart problems so i figured it might be the cause and my heart tends to beat faster then a normal person when i take gabapentin.  

I do have an extended drug use history but thats tapiered down a ton and even when on things said to lower your blood pressure, how you end up o ding on them is it gets to low my blood pressure is way up there.  
it doesn't help my anxiety that much and would rather just stop taking it if it is the cause
