I have been doing so research on this. I do take many medication. Have to go back and check out the side effect on this. They were a few times I felt depress and did not realized some of the medication can cause this.One that I have taken a while back was the anxiety med. Did not like it.So drop it.Now they say blood pressure pill just as bad. I take two on the blood pressure photo online Below is from Today USA news for more ______________________________________________________________ More than one-third of adults in the U.S. take prescription drugs not knowing they could potentially cause depression or increase the risk of suicide, a new study finds. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago analyzed the use of medications of more than 26,000 adults from 2005 to 2014 who participated in a larger health and nutrition survey. They found that more than 200 commonly used prescription drugs have depression or suicide listed as potential side effects. The types of medications include hormonal birth control medications, blood pressure and heart medications, proton pump inhibitors, antacids and painkillers.

There are more side effects of medications that override the severity of the illness you are taking it for. I know. Been there. There are more natural treatments now for everything. I won't put anything synthetic into my system unless there is no known natural substitute for it.

I read this today too. A shame that medications that are supposed to help with one problem create other problems. It depends on the individual, however. Some will and some won't experience the negative side effects. The article stated that, "the study does not prove that the medications caused the depression. We're just showing that if you're already taking them, you are more likely to be depressed."

Did you know that most water retention pills, cause shortness of breath? Tony had figured this out years ago with another cheap brand HTZT and the docs out that on an allergy list, for a week he took himself off another and he could breath better. He got a new one a couple days ago, we shall see how this one does. DO NOT stop the blood pressure medication, as you will know having high BP is a silent killer. Sometimes we have to treat one thing and then treat another from the cause of the first treatment. Its all in the matter of if you want to live. Sugar causes depression too, many food preservatives cause many bad things to happen in the body. I am all for natural meds but we also have to change how we eat and exercise.
