Patricia Farrell, PhD responded:
Whoever is ordering your medications should have done a complete physical and continue to monitor your electrolytes because you are on a pill that some people call a "water pill." This is how the BP is kept down, but it can also affect your electrolytes which, in turn, can bring on anxiety and depression.

Certainly at that level of meds you should have received some relief, but meds don't comprise a complete treatment plan and you should be in cognitive therapy.

Please consider your options.
