Re: Xanex for HBP?
Mila, I have to agree with Carreen...Xanax is not appropriate for treating high blood pressure. Xanax is basically an anti-anxiety medication. Sure, chronic or extreme anxiety can elevate BP, but even if you have a major anxiety problem that needs to be treated with something like Xanax, it's not the medication to use to treat the high BP.
High BP is usually treated with a beta blocker, a calcium channel blocker, an ACE inhibitor, or a combination of the above (and sometimes a diuretic). You didn't say how high your BP is or how old you are, but those factors can also make a difference in how your BP is treated and what, if any, further tests you may need to determine if there's an underlying cause of the high BP besides anxiety, stress, or the aging process.
