Hi doctor, 1. No its not the first time but dont know why its affecting me so much, most of the time i am imagining her in the arms of the other person or making out with him & this thought makes me uncomfortable & i became very disturbed with it. 2. i havnt thought of killing myself once as the pain becomes higher n higher but i thought of my parents then. after that i refrain myself from it, however i often thinks that if my parents are not alive i would have run far from here or might be do something. 3. i havent taken anything yet but after a friends advice i started Omega 3 from Nutralite a couple of days back. Plz help me out the whole thing effects my work also, i used to be a star performer at my workplace but now i cant concentrate on my work, i often forget things or i dont want to work. even my sleep pattern is also disturbed. i used to sleep for hours but now i often wake up in nights n gets up early or without my mom's call. plz help me out doctor, i want to get rid of this. regards,

Brief Answer: Need treatment for depression Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your add on information. I have gone through them. You are basically suffering from a illness called major depressive disorder.(MDD). This MDD certainly requires treatment as it causes a lot of distress and long standing MDD can also cause damage to the brain if left untreated. Omega suppliment is a good option that you have started but you will reauire proper medical help. The drugs whic will help you are fluoxetine, escitalopram, mirtazapine, venlafaxine. These are god antidepressants and they need to be taken for 8months to releive you of the discomfort. You will start noticing the change in 2 weeks from now. Also you will require a sleeping aid like clonazepa or zolpidem initially for a few days to help you sleep. I suggest you should XXXXXXX a psychiatrist very soon as you have ideas of self harm as well. He can help you with these medications. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
