The answer is, Yes, it can. Venlafaxine hydrochloride ER, or extended-release, is associated with sustained increase in the blood pressure above baseline. In some instances it does lead to Hypertension. In general, this can be compensated for by in increasing the dose of your BP medicine, of course by your doctor.
