Finding out More About Depression Treatment

Author: Lina Smith


Depression can be very difficult to live with, it can leave you feeling as though you have nothing to look forward to, every tasks seem impossible to complete and you can find it hard to get up in the mornings. Everyone feels depressed from time to time but when it gets so bad that you are struggling to cope it is time to find out more about depression treatment.


One of the first things that you should do if you are feeling depressed is to visit your doctor who will be able to speak to you about how you are feeling and go on to suggest possible depression treatment. As depression and its severity varies from person to person there could be more depression treatment options than you thought. For some people the best initial depression treatment is medication, if the symptoms are very severe. In fact, sometimes if the depression is mixed with highs the doctor may suspect bipolar disorder and if this is the case the correct depression treatment and bipolar treatment will be prescribed.


If a person is just suffering from depression alone the depression treatment could take one of several forms. There are two main types of medication which are given for depression treatment and these are SSRIs and Tricyclics. SSRIs raise the level of serotonin within the brain and this is the chemical that is produced to lift a person’s mood, this type of depression treatment is widely prescribed as the results are very positive. Tricyclics are another form of depression treatment which also work to raise the levels of serotonin in the brain, they also raise the levels of noradrenaline and this can further help to lift the mood.


Medication is not the only form of depression treatment and many people find that in addition to antidepressants psychiatric sessions can also help. These usually take the form of 45 minute long appointments where the person with depression can talk through their symptoms and find out more about the depression treatments that are available to them. Often a psychiatrist can give a better diagnosis of the severity of depression and engage the sufferer in cognitive behavioural therapy which can have excellent results.


In very extreme cases a person with depression will need to be admitted to hospital to receive more intense depression treatment. At these times the person with depression may be unable to eat, they may withdraw into themselves and feel totally isolated from the world. When depression gets to this stage it is imperative that the correct depression treatment is started and as quick as possible.


Complimentary medicines are also now widely used as an effective depression treatment and many people turn to these in times when they feel low or depressed. It is always wise however, if you are already taking medication for depression, that you make sure that complimentary medicines such as St John’s Wort do not interfere with them. If it is fine to take them, complimentary medicines can be a useful and worthwhile depression treatment in conjunction with other forms of treatment.
