Depression Diagnosis and Treatment
Depression Diagnosis and Treatment
A doctor can diagnose depression using a physical exam, lab tests, and questionnaires. He or she will ask about your symptoms and any family history you have had. Then, a psychiatric evaluation will determine if your depression is treatable. In some cases, medication or alcohol use may be suspected. A medical professional will also ask you questions about your symptoms, including your thoughts and feelings. If these symptoms are consistent with another condition, your doctor may recommend a test to rule out depression.
If you’re struggling with depression, it’s important to seek treatment. Most primary care physicians offer screenings for depression as part of your routine visit. If your symptoms persist, you can request a referral to a psychiatrist. The sooner you seek treatment, the better. A doctor’s appointment can help you feel better and return to your routine. If you’ve been avoiding going to the doctor because of depression, it may be time to seek professional help.
Depression is not the same as sadness. While everyone experiences blue days and unmotivated periods, depression is a chronic mood disorder. Unlike sadness, depression has a biological basis and negatively impacts your health and quality of life. It can be life-threatening. Listed below are some signs and symptoms of depression. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms, seek professional help. If you think you’re experiencing any of these conditions, don’t delay treatment.
If you’ve tried psychotherapy but nothing has worked, try antidepressant medication. Often, medication is necessary if other treatments have failed or are not an option. Also, if you’re suffering from more severe cases, antipsychotic medication may be the best option. If you are suffering from severe depression, you may need medication to treat the symptoms. Psychotherapy can help you manage negative thoughts and attitudes, and help you get back to normal activities.
Psychotherapy, also called talk therapy, is an effective treatment for depression. During therapy, you learn skills to improve your mood and prevent relapses of depression in the future. Most commonly, talking therapy for depression involves cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, and problem-solving therapy. Sometimes, a combination of these three types of therapy is used to treat a patient’s symptoms. Some people respond best to a combination of psychotherapy and medications.
Medications for depression may help ease symptoms, but they are not appropriate for long-term use. For example, St. John’s Wort may interact with prescription drugs, such as antidepressants. Make sure you tell your doctor if you are taking any other medications or are taking birth control pills. Alternative treatments should be accompanied by a change in your lifestyle. They may not work on their own, so it’s important to work with a doctor to get the right treatment for your specific case.
Treatments for depression during pregnancy may include talk therapy or other natural remedies. Some women take antidepressants during pregnancy, although the risks associated with these drugs are not known until after birth. Moreover, the risks of depression after delivery continue after delivery. Postpartum depression (also known as peripartum depression) is a serious problem for new mothers, and alcohol misuse is associated with postpartum depression. In addition to medications, natural treatments may include acupuncture or vitamin supplements.
