    High Blood Pressure- Possibly Cortef

    Has anyone experienced high blood pressure taking cortef? My son's BP has raised a lot in just the past few days and I'm not sure if that's due to excess cortef or something else he is taking. He is taking a small dose of Effexor which can also raise Bp but I wouldn't think that was causing the problem because he has been on Effexor for 4 years without any problems with BP and still at the same small dose. His BP has been running 145/101 or so with an increased pulse too. I've read an increased pulse may be due to water retention so that makes me think this is from the cortef. Since I have suspected he has only suppression from a steriod injection, and not true AI, now I'm wondering what is the possibility his body is now making cortisol and he is still taking cortef. I will ask his endo tomorrow on our visit but I just wondered if anyone else has experienced this.
