I don't know about anti-depressant medications, but I know that some beta-blockers (which are used for high blood pressure) are given to people for anxiety.

I hope this helps.

Trazodone does (although it's not terribly effective as an antidepressant). Remeron seemed to lower mine a little. No effect from the SSRI's.
