I don't thinkso. Very possibly its rather your anxiety that's causing the hypertension.
I would hesitate a long time before tackling social anxiety with drugs as you can come to depend on them indefinitely and the effects you mention are not uncommon at your age.. Try looking at Google under social anxiety alternative treatment, and some way down the page there are several very useful ways you might like to try first.
Calming exercise routines such as yoga or tai chi are very good at helping you to discover where your tensions are and helping you to let go of them and this benefits your health in all sorts of ways without medical intervention. You will find that if you can find areas of physical tension (shoulders, stomach, arms, wrists etc) and learn to truly relax (not easy but well worth it) it will help your mental stte too. learn slow deep breathing too, breathing to expand the diaphragm downwards rather thn the chest outwards. All this takes longer than taking a pill but it is infinitely better in the long run - just needs dedication and motivation. 0
