Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi sandy,
1st episode Depression at this age is not so common. Most of the time there would be underlying organic cause .
Presents of involuntary movement suggest Parkinsonism need to be ruled out.
Early feature of Dementia presents as Depression.

Get a Neurologist opinion. If neurologically found to be normal then go for Antidepressants with advise of your nearest psychiatrist.
