Welcome to HCM
is itself risk factor for depression
. You are off night duty since last 7 years. Just to psychoeducate you changing to night shift will change your sleep pattern and will also disrupt sleep cycle
. It may worsen your symptoms of depression. Secondly if you are taking medicines then it will also change their levels. But as you are alright now then you can think of joining the night shift. But you have to change the timings of drugs accordingly. Also have enough sleep, at least 6-8 hrs per day. You can visit your psychiatrist
Also you can approach your office authorities with your reports and you can request them to keep you in day shifts.
