Depression – What You Need to Know
Depression is a disorder that can affect anyone at any age. It’s a condition that causes feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or worthlessness, along with other symptoms. It can make it hard for people to work and have social relationships. It can also cause physical problems, such as weight loss and fatigue.
It can occur alone or in conjunction with other mental health conditions, such as anxiety or bipolar disorder. It usually starts during childhood or adolescence and lasts at least 12 months.
The exact cause of depression isn’t known, but some research suggests that it may be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Some doctors believe that this change in the chemicals in your brain can be treated with medications called antidepressants. However, the evidence for this is weak and we don’t know if antidepressants help people feel better or just treat their depression.
Treatment is typically a combination of medications, psychotherapy and other treatments. If these don’t work, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) or other brain stimulation therapies can be used.
If you’re concerned about someone who’s having trouble with their depression, it’s important to reach out for help. You can do this by calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or visiting a local emergency room. It’s also important to talk to a primary care doctor or other health professional, or to someone who is a faith leader or member of your community.
You can also get help by taking action to reduce your stress levels, including getting regular exercise and eating well. You can even try meditation or talking to a therapist. These approaches can be helpful, but remember that they take time and commitment.
Your doctor can help you find the right treatment for your depression. They will ask questions about your symptoms, thoughts and behavior patterns, and may use the criteria for depression listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5).
A good doctor will be able to offer you options that will work for you. They can help you decide on the right medication, psychotherapy or other treatment.
The most common type of medication for treating depression is a serotonin-reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), like Prozac, Zoloft or Cymbalta. These drugs are usually prescribed once a week and can take 4 to 8 weeks to begin working, although your doctor can prescribe a longer course if you need it.
These drugs aren’t a cure for depression, but they can help you feel better and give you more energy. They work by changing how your brain rewires itself. You’ll also need to make lifestyle changes and work with your doctor to manage side effects.
Your doctor will likely prescribe a medication for depression after a complete medical and psychiatric evaluation, which can include a physical exam or lab tests. They’ll also talk to you about your history of depression and other mental health disorders, such as anxiety or a learning disability.
Medication is a great way to treat depression, but it isn’t a cure and can lead to unwanted side effects. Other treatments, such as exercise and psychotherapy, are just as effective, but they don’t have any harmful side effects and can be very effective for long-term treatment.
