Re: Hypertension medication and SSRI+Benzos - Interactions?
SSRI's can cause increase in blood pressure for some. Paxil is less likely to, and more sedating than many others in the class. Also, it does not work on norepinephrine, only serotonin, so again...less likely to raise bp.
I would recommend taking Klonopin separately, as needed. Also, just monitor your BP at home a few times a week to be sure you aren't getting raised BP...but remember, the anxiety of starting a new med will likely raise it somewhat until you get used to it. Good luck and feel better!
