increased blood pressure after stopping Lexapro

Is it possible to experience increased blood pressure after stopping Lexapro? I have been off of Lex for about 4 months and I am now on 4 different blood pressure meds. Would stopping Lexapro be a cause? If so is it possible to go back to taking Lexapro?

I haven't really heard about blood pressure increasing after coming off of SSRIs, but I am not a doctor.  Has your anxiety increased after coming off Lexapro?  That can definitely raise your blood pressure significantly.  Also, is your BP high at home as well and not just at the doctor's office?  Mine is typically 30-40 points higher at the doc's office than it is at home.  Yes you can go back on an SSRI; just do it through your dotor. Do not self medicate.  Keep us posted!
