Welcome to healthcaremagic....
First of all please tell me that your depression started first or your Hypertension?
The reversible causes of your depression must be tackled first.
You have not mentioned about your other investigations like lipid profile, thyroid profile, blood sugar estimation or kidney profile.
Diet. exercise & medication all the three works well to control Hypertension.
Always keep in touch with your doctor. Regular monitoring of Blood pressure is must.
Have a walk in fresh airy atmosphere.

Psychiatrist Dr. B Raghavendra's  Response

Both nebivolol in nebistar-h and telmisartan of telista can cause depression as side effects. But as you say your depression was there even before the medication was started, I would suggest that you consult your physician to alter the medication to some other medication if possible with no side effects of depression.

If that is not possible, then consult a psychiatrist who can give you some medication to help with your depression.

If you are already on medication for depression, please ask your psychiatrist if your antidepressant is an old TCA (Tricyclic antidepressants) type of antidepressants. These are good antidepressants but have lot of cardio-vascular problems and hence are not now a days prescribed with new safer, but yes expensive, anti depressants in the market.

to summarise, your physician and psychiatrist must be able to coordinate their medication such that the treatment of one problem does not increase the other problem.

Your question is not clear. Do you want to ask if you can continue Telista? That would require you to consult your Physician. In this post, there is no mention of anything related to depression that you want to ask. And, there is no mention of any anti-depressant medication. Rivotril can only help with anxiety and sleep. Please ask more specific question.
