How can depression be treated?

Hello, I am currently taking serotonin mood support pills as I am going through menopause / depression. I am having difficulty with motivation every day and have read about the dopamine receptor being low could attribute towards it. Is it safe to take both serotonin mood support pills along with Tyrosine pills ?

Psychologist 's  Response

Depressive disorder or depression is a neurochemical disorder. The suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, lifestyle changes, and etcetera.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
