Hi, I have high blood pressure, but I have found that most medications to control my high blood pressure have depression as a severe side effect, has anyone else experienced this and did you eventually find one that didn't cause depression. I need to control my blood pressure, but I also suffer from depression and all the high blood pressure medications have increased my depression so much. Any help/comments to my question would be so much appreciated. I am currently not on any meds for high blood pressure because I don't want to miss any more work due to depression. My BP is currently 150/104 with a pulse of 104.
Certain medications have been reported to cause depression, including some blood pressure medications. However, there are many different medications that can be used to treat hypertension as well as depression. I strongly urge you to discuss these problems with your physician.
