Symptoms - Recognizing the Indicators

Depression, commonly known as major depressive disorder, is more than just occasional sadness. It’s not a passing phase or a display of weakness; instead, it’s a condition that needs care, treatment, and understanding.

Here are the symptoms of the depression;

Persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, or emptiness.

 Thoughts of hopelessness or a generally pessimistic outlook.

Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness.

Irritability, frustration, or

Reduced energy, constant fatigue, or a feeling of being slowed down.

Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions.

 Changes in appetite lead to unplanned weight changes.

Loss of interest or joy in once-enjoyable activities.

Thoughts of death or suicide, or actual suicide attempts.

Sleep difficulties include trouble sleeping, early waking, or oversleeping.

 Physical symptoms like aches, pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive issues without a clear physical cause.

Causes- Finding the Core Issues

Biological Differences

When people feel depressed, their brains may undergo some changes.

Brain Chemistry

Depression might have something to do with natural chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters.


The balance of hormones in our bodies can also play a role in causing or making depression worse.

Inherited Traits

If your family members have had depression, there's a higher chance you might experience it, too.

Our Treatment Method

Depression is highly treatable among mental disorders. Treatment is effective for about 80% to 90% of individuals with depression. Besides, all patients experience some improvement in their symptoms.
Before we decide how to help, we talk to you and check your condition thoroughly. Sometimes, we do a blood test to rule out other issues, like thyroid problems or insufficient vitamins. If we find a medical reason, fixing that problem could make you feel better.



We use antidepressants to treat depression. These medications help your brain handle feelings and stress differently. It might take a bit of testing to find the one that enables you to feel better without causing too many issues.
Antidepressants could make things a bit better in the first two weeks. However, the full good effects might take two to three months. If you don’t feel much better after a few weeks, we may change how much you take or try a different kind of antidepressant.
