My 28 years old boyfriend went to a doctor, and he was told that he had high blood pressure. His blood pressure was 160/90 mmHg. He has never had high blood pressure before this but has had general anxiety daily for a long time. He did not want to take blood pressure medicine because he was afraid of it, so the doctor prescribed Zoloft instead. I have heard a lot of scary things about antidepressants and feel like he should have gone with the blood pressure medicine, and I do not think that Zoloft was a good idea. He also suffers from sleep apnea. Can you give any advice on Zoloft versus blood pressure medicine?
