Types of depression

Depression can be diagnosed if the symptoms persist for more than two weeks in a row. The more serious the depression, the greater the impact on daily life. As the severity of the disease increases, it becomes impossible to enjoy even the activities you like. Only with successful treatment can most patients recover completely.

Many patients have only one attack of depression and never experience depression again. But most patients have frequent seizures. The disease becomes chronic in fifteen to twenty percent of patients. These long-term patients may also have more severe depressive attacks.

About half of all patients recover from a second attack in five years. The period between two attacks is usually exactly the same person. They can handle work, social and economic responsibilities. No one even realizes that. That he had a disease before this. Fifteen to twenty percent of patients develop depression, which lasts for more than two years.

The onset of guilty feelings about having the affair, in the first place, further zaps whatever energy the partner having the affair might still have left. Such abrupt changes in mood are due to chemical changes in the neurons of the brain. About 90% of these patients can be completely cured with treatment and the symptoms of most patients can be controlled.


Depression in women

Depression is more common in women than in men. Physical as well as social factors may be responsible for this. The dual responsibilities of home and business, not having a husband, the responsibility of caring for children or elderly parents can be stressful. Endocrine changes during the life cycle - Changes during menstruation, miscarriage, postpartum, and around menopause increase a woman's risk of depression. .


It is common for many women to experience fatigue, restlessness, boredom, nausea, irritability, insomnia and crying in the immediate days after delivery. Treatment of depression only becomes necessary if multiple symptoms of depression last for more than fifteen days at a time. About 15-20% of women develop depression within a month of childbirth. In addition to treatment, help and guidance from the family in caring for the newborn is important. 


Depression in old age

Most seniors are satisfied with their lives. Aging should not be considered as depression. Older people with depression typically complain of physical problems: sleep, hunger, pain, tingling, or poor memory. They don’t talk about sadness, not being happy, mourning for a long time after the death of a loved one, and so on. Depression can be accompanied by physical illness or depression. Aging can also be an effective treatment for depression. .


Depression in children and adolescents

Depression can also occur in children and adolescents. The child refuses to go to school, makes various physical complaints, stays attached to the parents, worries that something will happen to the parents, stays behind in teaching or the parents do not obey the teachers. Psychiatry is especially effective in treating depression in children. .


Why does depression occur?

Not one but various factors are responsible for depression. Depression is more common in some families. .


Some changes are seen in the brains of depressed patients. The brain is made up of countless coils of millions of interconnected nerves. Proper functioning of biochemicals, known as neurotransmitters, is used to communicate between them. Deficiency of serotonin and norepinephrine in these chemicals can lead to depression. Some physical ailments, such as hypothyroidism or drugs used to treat other physical ailments, can cause depression.


Any change in life especially a negative incident e.g. Money, prestige, loss of a loved one, etc. are often associated with the onset of depression. Depression often occurs after childbirth. Depression is especially common among single-parent mothers who are struggling to cope with financial difficulties, raising young children and raising a family.


Depression often begins after a stressful event. The sadness that results from a social situation is a common experience. E.g. If this happens after the death of a relative, will there be sadness? Are considered and are not treated. Many people in society face traumatic situations. But not everyone gets sick. Sometimes depression starts even if there is no stressful incident. Depression does not start with the wrath of mantra-tantra or gods and goddesses.


Diagnosis

The doctor usually performs a thorough physical examination. Performs laboratory tests as needed. Checks for any physical ailments or medications for them that are responsible for depression. It asks the following questions. .


What's wrong?

  • Since when is the problem? How did it start
  • What is the effect of symptoms on life?
  • Has this happened before?
  • Was there any treatment for it?
  • What was the treatment? How much did it benefit?
  • Thoughts of suicide come?
  • Alcohol or other drugs?
  • Has any family member ever had such a problem?
  • What treatment did he receive? How much did it benefit?

Treatment

Depression is caused by physical, mental and social factors. Therefore, medication, electric shock treatment, psychiatry and the support of relatives are also important for treatment. With medication alone, up to 90% of patients with severe depression can recover in four to six weeks. Electric shock shakes benefit 5% of patients. Different types of psychiatry help more patients.


If a family member of a patient is depressed and has benefited from certain medications, the patient is more likely to benefit from the same medication. .

Depending on the possible side effects of the medication, the physical ailment and the medication given for it, the doctor will prescribe the safest and most effective medication for depression in a particular patient. .

Medications are usually started with low doses. But the drug is increased until the effective dose of the drug is beneficial. Some of the symptoms of depression, such as sleep, appetite, etc., improve rapidly. Sadness is finally removed from Sai. It can take up to three to four weeks (in some cases two months) for the drugs to get the most benefit. It just so happens that there is a slight benefit from the medication now that it feels better. If it works without medicine or if there is no benefit, then there is no benefit from the medicine. Thinking this, the patient stops the medicine on his own. This is not right. It is important to take regular medication long enough for the full benefit of the medication. Often side effects of the drug appear before the drug can be used. .

Once effective, the effective medication should be continued in the same dose for at least one year

Comes here. If the drug is stopped earlier, the symptoms reappear. Usually the drug is stopped by slowing down the dose, not completely. Medications should not be stopped manually without consulting a doctor. Medications have to be taken for life if there are frequent seizures or if the depression lasts for more than two years. .

Depression medications are not the only sleep medications. Moreover, these drugs do not become addictive. The doctor will examine the benefits and side effects of the medication. If a person suffering from depression suffers from any physical ailment, the doctor should be informed about the antidepressant medication he / she is taking during the treatment. Anti-depressant medications are safe in themselves but can have the opposite effect if taken with other medications. Alcohol consumption is not advisable.

Anxiety medications are not antidepressants. But sometimes doctors also prescribe antidepressants, along with antidepressants, in the early stages of treatment for insomnia. Anxiety medications alone do not completely cure depression. .

Drugs called lithium, diavalprox and carbamazepine are effective for bipolar disorder. In addition to these drugs, antidepressants need to be given for depression in bipolar disorder. .

Depression medications can have side effects just like physical illness medications. But these side effects are short-lived and mild. A doctor should be consulted immediately if side effects of the medication affect daily life.


Depression in men

Men also get depressed but they can't accept it. Abroad, four times more men die of suicide than women. Instead of despair or helplessness, men are more likely to be irritated or angry. They also consume excessive amounts of alcohol or other drugs or are constantly on the move. Depression is a real disease that needs treatment.
