If Effexor is working for you, I say stick with it. I took both Effexor and Celexa, which is basically the same thing as Lexapro. I hated Celexa but loved Effexor. Celexa did not allow me to sleep (max three hours's sleep/night even with meds) and caused me to have severe negative ruminating thoughts. Effexor was great. It eventually led to hypomania and sleep problems, but the first six months or so was great. I did have elevated blood pressure (like you, normally 90/60 and was about 120/90 -- that's still within the normal range) but it did not bother me. Use it while it is working for you and watch for the hypomania. Then maybe try the Lexapro.
