L-Lysine and blood pressure

Does anyone know if taking L-Lysine will cause an increase in blood pressure? I like to take it for fever blisters as it really clears them up, but it seems like every time I take it, my blood pressure shoots up.

Hey There,

Just the opposite...L-Lysine can in many cases LOWER your blood pressure. You have a bit of a mystery on your hands.

That is strange. I didn't think it should raise blood pressure either, but it did several times. I think I will try it again without the fever blister.

I don't know about blood pressure, but it can cause a rise in cholesterol, esp. trigylcerides.
