Hi , thanks for the question
If the symptoms are impairing your performance and with counselling
or routine advice, you are not better, Then you are likely to benefit from antidepressant TREATMENT. These days most commonly used antidepressant are SSRI
, which have practically no sugnificant side effects and the effects to come usually takes 2-4 weeks of treatment. Good luck for your exam, I am sure, you will do good.
