My blood pressure changed temporarily due to a new med

I went on a new med 2 months ago. My blood pressure was high (and I’d never had high blood pressure} a month ago. I was quite alarmed but today it was back almost to normal. So, it was just temporary as my body was adjusting to the Lexapro. I am relieved.

I have high blood pressure, sometimes it sky rockets, I am taking meds for it

Wow, didn’t know Lexapro could cause a change in BP. I’m recently started on it too, so I will have to self-monitor.

We’re just guessing that it was the med change. It could have been just stress due to the weather. Anyway, the body is a fantastic thing and can adapt if we give it half a chance.
