I suppose I could take beta blockers, but there's something about raising peripheral / cardiac norepinephrine then blocking it that leaves me a little uneasy. The highest I went on effexor was 75mg. At this dose I had an almost constant feeling of chest tightness as well as high heart rate and blood pressure. This resolved within 24 hours of switching to sertraline. I don't quite understand effexor. I didn't get this on nortriptyline 75mg (which should have had a much more potent effect on the norepinephrine transporter). I am in the camp that says there are yet undiscovered properties of effexor which lead to BP elevations at relatively low norepinephrine transporter inhibition.
