Medications That Can Cause Depression as a Side Effect

Benita Lee - August 18, 2018

More than one-third of US adults may be using a prescription medication associated with depression and/or suicidal symptoms as a possible side effect, a recent study finds. Over 200 medications, including birth control pills, blood pressure medications, antacids, and painkillers, were cited with these concerns.

The study, carried out by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago, found that 38% of adults interviewed from 2013 to 2014 used medications associated with depression as a possible side effect in the 30 days prior to the interview compared to 35% from 2005 to 2006. See More

Benita Lee - June 18, 2018

An unexpected increase in weight can be concerning for anyone. But it’s an unfortunate side effect of many common medications. Insulin, blood pressure medications, antidepressants, and even migraine medications can all cause weight gain, and some may even worsen the health conditions they’re trying to treat.

Sudden weight gain is never a reason to stop your medication without seeing your doctor first. See More

Could Your Meds Be Causing Diarrhea?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - November 06, 2017

Most diarrhea will resolve within 24 to 48 hours—if it’s caused by viral gastroenteritis (a stomach bug) or food borne illness. If your diarrhea is hanging on and not resolving, take a look at your medications. It can be challenging to identify which medication may be causing drug-induced diarrhea, especially if you’re taking multiple medications. Here are some well-known offenders commonly associated with drug-induced diarrhea. See More

What’s the Best Beta Blocker for Heart Failure?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - March 29, 2016

Beta blockers save lives after heart attack and improve mortality for heart failure patients. They also work well to control blood pressure. Carvedilol (Coreg was the brand name) has been known as the “heart failure beta blocker”—but now it appears that metoprolol (Lopressor) may share that title.

Many of my patients are asking: which is better? Let’s look at the recent evidence.

What’s the difference between carvedilol and metoprolol?
Carvedilol is known as a “non-selective beta blocker” meaning it blocks all beta receptors throughout the body. See More

The Big 8 Constipation-Causing Medications

Dr. Sharon Orrange - April 18, 2013

You are all stopped up and can’t find an obvious reason. Look over your medication list and you may find the source. Constipation has many causes but medications are among the most common.

First, if your stools are too hard or too small or pooping is too difficult or infrequent you are constipated. Officially, constipation is defined as a stool frequency of less than three per week. It can be miserable and medications prescribed by us, your physicians, are frequently to blame. See More

Single Pill Combinations for Blood Pressure

Dr. Sharon Orrange - February 12, 2013

Poor control of blood pressure (BP) is bad news, and is associated with enhanced risk of cardiovascular disease. Therapy with a single blood pressure medication fails to reach goals 75% of the time. This is just one reason that single pill combinations (two different blood pressure medications in one pill) make perfect sense.

Combining medications that have different and often complementary actions can lead to more complete and prompt reductions in BP. See More
