New research warns depression could be a side effect of more than 200 commonly prescribed medications. They include beta-blockers for blood pressure, birth control pills, antacids and painkillers. Depression rates more than tripled when people used at least three drugs with the possible side effect, compared to people who take none of those medications. Dr. Tara Narula, a cardiologist at Northwell Health, joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the study's findings and what patients should do if they're concerned.

I fell like i'm having depression cause few month's ago my father passed away and ever scene then i having these dream's were i can't even go to sleep without seeing whatever that it is it's like that thing been waking me up everytime i try to sleep..
My Tips for Depression. Cut down on sugar, avoid artificial sweeteners, aspartame, saccarin, nutrasweet etc, eat healthier that you ever have. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables, drink plenty of water and drink green tea, its healthy and good for you. Slowly come off anti depressants, even if it takes 6 months to do so, do it very slowly though and dont stop them all at once as it can make you worse with withdrawal symptoms and increase depression. Take 5mls of cod liver oil every day. Make porridge for breakfast in a pan. Get lots of excercise, even if you dont want to, try bike riding, walking or swimming. Cut down on watching tv and going on the internet, and dont put negative images in your mind from people arguing in soap operas.fictional shows etc, avoid negative people andf gossip. Have time alone walking in nature. Drink less alcohol if you drink. Ok im not saying this will eliminate depression immediatly, but try something different, do everything you can and see how you get on. I manage depression too and i know its something you have to take seriously to stand a chance of making a breakthrough. Thumb this up if you find it helpful
I realize that this is about the general public, but the hatred of medications and people who use them is quickly seeping into the chronically ill community, because of biased reports such as this one. People have to realize that if you are ill enough to have to be taking multiple medications, you are probably already depressed. Chronic pain, illness and terminal conditions are one of the biggest causes of depression. People need to take into account that many of these meds are necessary for people like us to NOT DIE. The stigma around the amount of meds that chronically and terminally ill people have to take is wrong and out of control. Not everyone thinks pills can fix everything. But what I do know, is that they are certainly capable of making the lives of those suffering easier. As for the people abusing these medications, our lives are made more difficult because of the average populations inability to not over prescribe and use.
Where's THE LIST ?... lame reporting as usual with these talking head morning shows, pretending to be informative. Make your CRAP RELEVANT CBS ... Talking heads, just more bla bla bla, from television. And they wonder why people re leaving this crappy programing format for streaming content. the advertisers should demand more for their money, hahaha.
I have to take medications to keep my heart functioning properly. And of course there are thousands of people with Shakas condition that need prescribed medication to be able to live as normally as possible. You would understand if someone you cared about was chronically ill.
I wonder if Big Pharma's aggressive ad campaigning over the last 3 decades has anything to do with the public's belief that a pill will solve every problem... Then again, as long as there's been snake oil, there's been a market.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
