How to overcome depression and anxiety?

Hey, I have been depressed for the last couple of years but it has always been relatively obscure.. Lately (a year), I have started becoming extremely anxious and depressed every time I wake up and it slowly reduces--normalizing at night, and it starts all over again if i got to bed. What worries me is that I can't seem to remember things like before--it is affecting my morals, studies, vision and determination. What shall I do?

Psychiatrist 's  Response

I read your query and can understand your concern regarding your symptoms. From what you have mentioned, it is highly likely that you are suffering from depressive disorder. The daily variation in sadness with more of it occurring in the early morning hours are typical in a type of depressive episode.

I suggest you should seek psychiatric consultation for complete evaluation and stating treatment. Treatment for depression will include medicines like sertraline, escitalopram, etc., (which are prescription drugs). These anti-depressant medications are safe and effective. In addition, you should start exercising daily which will help you relax and feel better.

Hope this information was helpful. Best wishes.
