I Am 57 and had a bypass in april 2010,i didn't have a heart attack just a pulled muscle in my neck ,so they think,they gave me a blood test,they said i needed an angiogram.they told me i was all blocked,so in i go for the op. I feel fitter now than ever bodily,its my head that is all over the place anxiety &depression.The y have started me on antidepressants,but i cant get this idea out of my head that the metoprolol perindopril might have something to do with it.I do not suffer with high b/p and never have.all my readings are good,same as before the op witch were also good.my doctor tells me i have to be on these drugs for the rest of my life.What can i expect if i slowly with doc permission come off these drugs,and just stick with lipitor aspirin,i cant seem to get an answer from my doc. many thanks
