Antidepressants are usually prescribed by doctors, psychologists and therapists to help individuals suffering from depression and other similar disorders. Clinical depression is very distressing and debilitating to cope with and affects millions of people of over the world. It is usually caused by drastic and unfavorable life changes, traumatic events, or genetic disorders.
Quick diagnosis and treatment of clinical depression is crucial and if left unchecked, can bring about very serious altercations and bouts in the future, which will only keep getting worse. However, depression is very much treatable, through self-care, clean living, eating healthy eating habits, regular exercise, proper medical consultation, therapy and medications. Love and support from family, friends and peers also go a long way to help those suffering from depression and enables them to metaphorically, “get back on the horse” and start living life the way it is supposed to be!
