Depression is a very common condition, but that doesn’t mean it should be taken lightly.
All too often, when a patient goes to their doctor, worried that they might be suffering from this sometimes debilitating condition, they’re prescribed antidepressants.
Now, such medications may work very well for some people, and they often do, but they don’t work for everyone. So, what do you do if you’re one of the people who antidepressants don’t help? How do you cope? Do you carry on and hope for the best? Go without? See what happens?
No. You do none of the above under any circumstances.
You seek help and ask for alternative treatments.
