I have been on Metropolol for several years and my depression is not improving. How do I justify to my doctor that I want to stop the medication to see if my depression improves?

@keva74 Metropolol is a blood pressure medication, not used for depression. Is there another prescription you are on, for depression.

I’m aware that Metoprolol is not for depression, but one of its side effects is depression, so I need to drop it or find something different.

@keva74 Are you sure it's Metroprolo? Are you on other meds ? Almost all meds have same side effects

@keva74– You are indeed correct. Depression is one of the side effects of Metoprol https://www.everydayhealth.com/drugs/metoprolol. It is also a common side effect.
I take Metformin Januvia Piaglitazone potassium chloride Pravastatin, Furosemide as well as Metoprolol. I neeed to get off some of these medications, at least I think I do.
@keva74 Yes that is alot of meds Are you happy with your Dr,s ? If not think about getting a 2bd opinion sometimes another Dr can see things differently .There is a website I use for drugs and there interaction www drug .com
@keva74 Indeed, that is several medications! Remember, also, that side effects can often times "stack" when using multiple medications. Perhaps a discussion with your Dr and pharmacist would be of benefit.
