Question Lexipro & Blood Pressure...

I have been taking 10mg of Lexipro for almost 3 months. I can't believe how much this drug has done for me. I struggled with increasing anxiety symptoms off and on for most of my life and then before Lexipro the anxiety became intolerable. My blood pressure always seemed to be moderately high 145/80 before Lexipro, due to being anxious all the time. Now after taking Lexipro my blood pressure is 85/80. I feel so calm now, it's awesome...[B] Has anyone had this experience on Lexipro??? And how long does the tiredness last??? [/B] I admit I do not like feeling tired most days, but I will take tired any day over anxiety. I know some of you have not had a positive experience with Lexipro, it's not for everyone. If you are at your witts end with anxiety, I encourage you to try Lexipro. Yes there are some side effects, but when you compare them to the anxiety, which would you rather have??? Good luck to you all...

Re: Lexipro & Blood Pressure...

anxious people often have high blood pressure so when lexapro works for you, a lower BP can be expected
the tiredness isnt general, your dose of lexapro is low and probably cant be lowered and kept working,
I can only suggest you take it before bed
