Certain blood pressure medications, oral contraceptives, painkillers and even antacids were cited on the list of 200 prescription drugs named in the study that have known potential side effects of depression and even suicide.

The researchers have not established any causal relationship between the drugs they identified in the study and depression - they merely pointed out a correlation. Use of three or more drugs concurrently increased from 7 percent to 10 percent, approximately.
According to Allan Young, director of the Center for Affective Disorders at King's College London who was not involved in the study, the "findings seem robust".
"It could be the chronic conditions people are taking the medications for, heart conditions, cancer, is what's really causing the depression, not the drugs", said Dr. Tara Narula.
"Many prescription medicines may have depression as a possible side effect and this should be discussed with patients up front".
Qato says that solutions worth further study may include updating drug safety software to recognize depression as a potential drug-drug interaction, so that health care professionals, including pharmacists, are more likely to notice if a patient is using multiple medications that may increase risk.
