The anti-depression medication.
« on: December 13, 2016, 11:29:13 AM »
Does these kinds of medication elevates blood pressure?
I am taking it. It seems it does elevate
it was 130/90 before taking it.
It goes for level especially in winter.
But after taking this medication it went for 140/98.
I am very concerned.
Do i have low potassium and magnesium levels?
Please help.

Best wishes. You're right to be concerned. Take your concerns to the prescribing specialist, your primary care physician, and get a referral to nephrologist. A complete blood count plus specific additional tests should quantify your mineral, creatinine, and protein levels. May all this be transitory and ultimately resolved favorably. Take care.
