Types of Depression

There are several types of depression:

  • Persistent Depressive Disorder: This type of depression is a mixture of mild and severe depression spells. However, for depression to be termed as “persistent” it should be present in the patient for at least two years.
  • Psychotic Depression: This type of depression is accompanied by delusions and hallucinations. The symptoms are connected to a feeling of guilt, illness, or poverty.
  • Postpartum depression: This type of depression is usually experienced during pregnancy or after delivery. It is usually accompanied by extreme exhaustion, anxiety, and sadness, resulting in difficulties for new mothers to be attentive towards the newborn.
  • Bipolar Disorder: While this condition is different from depression, a person suffering from the former usually experiences extreme high and low moods, similar to major depression.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder: This type of depression usually occurs during the winter when sunlight is more or less absent. It is accompanied by feelings of emotional withdrawal, weight gain, and sleeping more often.

Medications for Depression

Antidepressants are the primary medications taken for the treatment of depression as they can help improve the way our brain uses certain chemicals related to mood or stress. They are the mainstay of medical treatment for depression. Our doctors do not prescribe one medicine for all but perform diagnostic tests which ensure that you are getting the right medication specific to your condition.

An antidepressant usually takes at least 2 to 4 weeks to work. Patients can feel improvement in appetite, sleep, and mood. We strongly advise our patients not to discontinue taking the prescribed medication without consulting our doctors first. The same applies to starting medication. The process of starting and ending a course needs to be done in a controlled manner so that you do not experience withdrawal symptoms.

Some of the common antidepressants are:

  • Escitalopram (Lexapro)
  • Fluoxetine (Prozac)
  • Paroxetine (Paxil)
  • Sertraline (Zoloft)

There is no single best antidepressant for treatment-resistant depression. Each case is different and requires a specific antidepressant or even combination of drugs. Medications along with therapy are considered the best treatment for chronic depression.
