What are some anti depression medication that lower blood pressure?

I don't know of any. But there may be some less likely to raise it than others. Ask your Dr to keep that in mind and ask a pharmacist too. Non-drug treatment would be a very good addition - CBT therapy, meditation, yoga, etc. They'll optimize any med and also fight depression in a big way. Learning better life strategies is very valuable for health. Best!
