Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Previously using and recently withdrawn from the following medications: morphine (replaced by suboxone) moclobemide and duloxetine (replaced wita time of intense personal crisis and during an emotional breakdown. Some symptoms existed prior to change in medication, some are new and some have been worsening rapidly on a daily basis.
From this study (2 months ago):
Previously using and recently withdrawn from the following medications: morphine (replaced by suboxone) moclobemide and duloxetine (replaced with mirtazipine) and recently tapered off diazepam against will and against medical advice from GP in order to meet local suboxone prescribing regulations. All this occurred during a time of intense personal crisis and during an emotional breakdown. Some of the symptoms had been present prior to drug changes and some manifested afterward or while others seemingly became aggravated by the recent changes in (cessation of old and beginning of new) medication. In any case, many of the symptoms seem to be worsening rapidly on a daily basis.

I have been taking Remeron 15 mg for a few months and recently added 5 mg Celexa. My systolic blood pressure went up immediately; it had been mostly in the high 120's and now is 140+. Is this a coincidence, or could the Celexa be causing it?
