Psychiatrist 's  Response
Dec 2014
Welcome to HCM

She is just 24 and she is having negative thoughts, crying spells and she is in depressed mood. Most likely the symptoms are of Depressive Episode. Also her last episode appears to be depressive episode. Depression is a episodic illness and it tend to increase in severity after some significant life event. But proper management is possible by a trained Psychiatrist. Medicines like SSRI as Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Sertaline etc are new medicines and have very less side effects. Non medicinal therapies like Cognitive Therapy is very useful in depression.
So please take her to a good Psychiatrist and take expert opinion.

Psychiatrist Dr. Payman Hajiazim's  Response
Hi there, thanks for asking. Depression should be treated thoroughly. Otherwise, it can cause many problems for the person and also her family. If it is not treated, the person will experience many episodes in the course of the disease. There are good medications and also psychotherapy option for its treatment. Women are susceptible to depression after their pregnancy. It is a good time to treat it and the medication should be continued for some years since she has had at least two episodes of depression. Best wishes with her health.
