I am on BP meds working for years. BP just started jumping up very high. 194/99' 168/106. Can invega (paliperidone) or Abilify cause this? Should I be concerned?

I am on BP meds working for years. BP just started jumping up very high. 194/99' 168/106. Can invega (paliperidone) or Abilify cause this? Should I be concerned?

Not really.: Both Invega (paliperidone) and Abilify are more prone to cause postural hypotension rather than hypertension, Invega (paliperidone) because of its Alpha blocking effect. However, your doctor needs to find out whether you have other conditions such as kidney problems that can cause the hypertension. I would be very concerned with your high blood pressure and you need immediate attention. Go to the ER now. ...Read more
