Brief Answer:
No rise in blood pressure

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There are some interactions associated between nebivolol and fluoxetine. At therapeutic dosage, fluoxetine interferes with nebivolol metabolism. Thereby one might have a lower blood pressure.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
