Depression

Depression may be described as feeling sad, blue, unhappy, miserable, or down in the dumps. Most of us feel this way at one time or another for short periods.

True clinical depression is a mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration lasts for weeks to months and they interfere with usual everyday life.

Antidepressants are medications utilised for the treatment of depression and can be used alone or in combination with other medications.
