Depression – Causes, Symptoms, Treatment and Prevention
Depression is a mental health disorder that can have a negative impact on a person’s life. It can affect a person’s sleep, appetite, mood, thoughts and behavior. It can also affect relationships with family, friends, and work colleagues. It is a serious illness that requires treatment.
Depression can happen at any age. It’s most common in women, but men can also be depressed.
Causes of depression vary from biological to circumstantial. Some possible causes include brain chemistry, hormone levels, and a family history of depression or another mood disorder.
Symptoms of depression are often very severe. They can make you feel worthless, sad, depressed, unable to sleep or function normally, and have thoughts of suicide. They may last for weeks, months or years and can change over time.
Signs of depression in children and adolescents are different than signs of sadness in adults, and symptoms can include crying easily, sleeping too much or too little, low self-esteem, irritability, anger, poor performance at school, difficulty concentrating, and feeling anxious or guilty. They can also cause disruptive behaviors like skipping school or being late for appointments or meals, self-harming, or trying to kill themselves.
Your doctor can diagnose depression based on your symptoms and a psychological evaluation. He or she can also do a physical exam and order blood tests.
Treatment for depression includes medication, therapy and counseling. Your doctor will choose the right combination to help you get better.
Antidepressants (or drugs that work on the brain) are the most effective treatment for most people with depression. Your doctor will start you on a low dose and increase it slowly over a few weeks. You may need to try several medications before finding one that works for you.
You may also need to talk with a psychologist or psychiatrist for more intensive help. They can help you find ways to cope with your feelings, improve your thinking and behavior, and learn how to handle stressful events.
The best time to start treatment for depression is when you first notice the symptoms. If you wait too long, the symptoms can get worse and lead to suicidal thoughts or actions.
Taking medication for depression is not easy, but it can help you get better. You will need to see a doctor regularly for follow-up visits. If you stop taking your medicine, it can cause withdrawal symptoms that can be very bad.
There are many types of antidepressants, each working differently. You and your doctor may need to try different ones until you find one that works for you. You may need to take them together with other medicines and supplements.
If you’re taking an antidepressant, tell your doctor if you have any other medical conditions or medicines. Adding other medications can reduce the effectiveness of some antidepressants.
Your doctor may also recommend certain vitamins, herbs or other natural products that can help with your depression. However, the FDA has not approved any dietary supplements for use with depression.
