Depression – What Are the Symptoms of Depression?
Depression is a serious medical condition that affects mood and can cause problems at home, work or school. The symptoms are different for everyone and may not always be obvious. Depression is a long-lasting illness and is different from normal feelings of sadness or grief, which are common responses to life events. It is important to get help when you have the symptoms of depression because it can be dangerous if left untreated, especially in severe cases. Depression can be treated with therapy, medication or a combination of both.
It’s not clear what causes depression, but it’s likely that changes in brain chemistry are involved. These changes may be due to inherited traits, early life experiences or environmental factors. Certain medications also can cause depression, including anticonvulsants used to treat seizures and high blood pressure. It is also possible that changes in hormones can play a role, such as those that occur during pregnancy, in the weeks and months following birth (postpartum), or in response to thyroid problems or menopause.
The first step in treatment is telling your doctor about your symptoms. Your doctor will ask questions, give you a physical exam and do some lab tests to check your blood levels and other important signs. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may be hospitalized or treated in an outpatient setting.
Talk therapy is an essential part of depression treatment. During therapy, you’ll talk with a trained mental health professional in a safe environment about your feelings and problems. Your therapist can teach you ways to cope with your symptoms and help you find solutions that work for you. Psychotherapy can be done individually or in group. Many people find individual therapy more comfortable because they can discuss personal issues with a therapist in confidence. Group therapy can be helpful because it can help you learn how others deal with depression and support each other.
A healthy lifestyle can also help reduce the symptoms of depression. Try to eat a balanced diet and get enough sleep. Exercise regularly. Avoid drugs, alcohol and caffeine. And stay in touch with family and friends. Try to schedule regular social activities, such as lunch or a movie. Join a depression support group or seek out other ways to connect with others who have similar needs, such as an employee assistance program or religious group.
Antidepressants can help with depression by raising the amount of certain chemicals in your brain that pass messages between nerve cells. They may take a while to start working, so it’s important to stick with your treatment plan. If you don’t see improvement, talk to your doctor about changing the dosage or trying a different drug.
There are many different antidepressants, and it can take time to find one that’s right for you. The type of antidepressant you take depends on the cause of your depression. Your doctor will help you find a medicine that’s best for you.
