Effexor is the main antidepressant known to increase blood pressure sometimes (usually in higher doses). It can rarely happen with other meds too like prozac & wellbutrin.
However, sometimes blood pressure can be elevated in people with anxiety/depression...and if the meds (like prozac/wellbutrin) help treat those symptoms, they could potentially lower blood pressure indirectly.
The bot***** *****ne is every person's response is different. The best way to know the effect on you is measure your blood pressure before starting the meds and then after. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.
