Is it possible that high blood pressure cause bags and dark circles under the eyes?

I don't know about dark circles, but some bp meds can effect the eyes.

I don't know about high blood pressure causing those specific problems, but I do know that since I've been on Toprol (weaning off of it as I type!!!! ) I've had dark circles surrounding my eyes. I feel (and look!) like a raccoon on some days! The surprises just never end.........

With the beta-blockers like Toprol & Atenolol, nothing would shock me. On the beta-blockers, my eyes have become much more dry & red in the mornings. It doesn't sound that unusual.

Re: Can high blood pressure cause dark circles under eyes?

I've also have dark circles and sometimes bags under the eyes in the mornings since I've been on a beta blocker. Also, sometimes my whole face is a little puffy. I can also get the puffiness just by laying down for an hour or so and taking a nap. My Dr. told me that the puffiness was coming from my thyroid but now that my thyroid levels are normal I still have it. I didn't have this problem until the hbp meds, so it has to be the meds.
