Depressed? Dont be.
The treatment depends upon the severity of the condition. There are a lot of misconceptions ignorance and regarding treatment leading to a lot of unnecessary suffering and loss of productive time. Depression is not because of lack of effort from the patient. Don’t get angry if the person cannot be positive despite ‘instructions’.
In mild or moderate depression, the patient is managed either with Medications or Psychotherapies, with medications becoming more important as the severity increases. In severe depression, hospitalisation may be required whereby the patient is managed with medications. The medications given are very safe and effective if taken under proper supervision. These do not cause dullness and do not make a person lethargic. These are also not addicting or causing dependence. And the treatment results are most encouraging.
