200+ common medications may cause depression, study finds

New research warns depression could be a side effect of more than 200 commonly prescribed medications. They include beta-blockers for blood pressure, birth control pills, antacids and painkillers. Depression rates more than tripled when people used at least three drugs with the possible side effect, compared to people who take none of those medications. Dr. Tara Narula, a cardiologist at Northwell Health, joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss the study's findings and what patients should do if they're concerned.
