Depression causes high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Depression causes high blood pressure


Avatar n tn Hi. I am new to this site and have a question. I have high blood pressure and have been putting off taking medication. Today I was at the dr. and finally I have decided to take a medication. I also wanted to talk to the Dr. about possibly taking an anti-depressant as I have been sporting symtons of anxiety and depression. He said until my blood pressure was stabalized, he did not want to investigate anything else. Does anyone with High Pressure also have symptons of depression/anxiety?
Avatar f tn It helped but returned the next day in the afternoon. Also blood pressure was very high. I have a family history of high blood pressure, my mom and dad and grandmother. I guess now it is my turn. I take a blood pressure medication but it is for headaches.

Avatar f tn So today at work we had a biometric screening. My blood pressure has been consistently high for years now. All the dr's tell me is to lose weight. Yes, I know I'm overweight and it's hugely depressing. But today my blood pressure was 150 over 120. Way higher then what I expected. Do I make a dr's appt and insist they do something about it? I joined Curves and am trying to work out, but it's hard with my schedule. I gained even more weight after the m/c.

Avatar f tn I was happy, since my blood pressure has been pretty stable for a while, but it wasn't too good today. I measured 30 minutes after walking for 30 minutes. Maybe I should have waited for a little longer to measure.
