I have been on Zoloft now for 4 weeks and am suddenly suffering from very high blood pressure at 154/104. Could zoloft be causing this as my blood pressure was fine and has been fine consistently now for a long time.
I cannot tell you for sure, but I can tell you that I have tried several anti-depressants and while taking them I had high blood pressure. It was severe enough that my insurance company sent me a letter regarding how to get it under control. Do not switch to Effexor... bad, bad stuff. Read the forum on the Effexor and see how many symptoms people have that are no where to be found on the "clinical trail symptom's list".
