Question is related to
Psychiatrist 's  Response
There is no doubt that you have you are on beta blocker for so long it is probable you have developed depression due to it as they are prone to cause it but not necessarily this is the case
Secondly propanolol is the drug of choose for tremor so if you had problem of tremor , the doctor had no choice and you should have visits doctor regularly so that he could have tapered your medicine in such a long your tremor are due to it's withdrawal.....but still there is consult a psychiatrist who will reduce your propanalol and give you another medicine to tackle your problem and that can also help you in your depression also...
Take care
