Yes: One side effect of Effexor (venlafaxine) can be elevated blood pressure. Review with prescribing doctor to consider dose change or alternate medication. Do not let increased BP while on Effexor (venlafaxine) be dismissed as "stress." See: http://www.pdrhealth.com/drugs/effexor I hope this helps. Best wishes.
