Depression – What You Need to Know
Depression is a mental illness that can have a devastating effect on your life. It affects your emotions, and how you think and feel about yourself and others. It can make it hard to function at home, work and in school. It can also lead to other health problems. About 280 million people worldwide have depression. It is one of the most treatable mental illnesses. It can be treated with medication, psychotherapy or a combination of both. You can also treat it by changing your lifestyle.
Depression often runs in families. If you have a first-degree relative with depression, you are about three times more likely to develop it yourself. But you can also get depressed even if you have no family history of depression. Other risk factors include stress, physical illnesses and certain medications.
You can take steps to prevent depression by getting exercise, eating well, avoiding drugs and alcohol and sleeping regularly. You can also help yourself by reaching out to a support group or taking part in psychotherapy. Your doctor will recommend a treatment plan after a thorough evaluation. This will include a physical exam and a review of your medical and social history. If your depression symptoms are severe, your doctor may recommend hospitalization for psychiatric treatment or prescribe a mood stabilizer, antipsychotic or antianxiety drug.
Medications can be very effective at treating depression. There are several kinds of antidepressants, and it may take time to find the right one for you. It’s also important to stick with your treatment plan. It takes 4 to 6 weeks for these medicines to have a full effect. It’s also possible that your doctors will need to change the type of medicine or the dose of it.
Psychotherapy is a type of talk therapy that can help you deal with your emotional and life problems. Psychotherapy can help you change unhealthy thoughts and behaviors that contribute to depression. It can be done on a one-on-one basis with a therapist or in group sessions. Some people find that short-term psychotherapy is enough, while others need to continue for months or years.
Sometimes depression is a sign of a serious medical condition, such as a thyroid disorder or vitamin deficiency. Your doctor will check for these conditions and other medical problems before recommending treatment for depression.
In some cases, your doctor may recommend ECT (electroconvulsive therapy), which sends electric currents through your brain. This helps your neurotransmitters work better. Your doctor typically only recommends this if other treatments don’t work.
