A 21-year-old male asked:
Can cipralex and ssris cause vasoconstriction and raise blood pressure ?

Possibly: While SSRIs generally are very selective to the neurotransmitter serotonin, there may be some some effects on norepinephrine receptors. This theoretically can raise pressure, however in practice we typically do not see this.
