In brief: Yes, BUT
Ssri's can be used, but certain medications used in managing hypertension can produce serious drug-drug interactions.
Make sure all of your doctors know all of your medications, even the seemingly innocuous ones, and notify all of your doctors about any new medications added or deleted, including over the counter ones you may buy on your own!
