                            Depression Medicine - Is This The Best Cure For Depression?
                                                                 By Ian Spencer



   Despite our best guesses, no one is exactly sure what causes depression. There are also various
ways in which depression can manifest. It is hard to tell whether or not someone will develop this
condition, and the best way of figuring out whether or not a medication will work for a given individual is
to try it out. However, do not let these facts discourage you because for some people, depression
medicine can help. So, you must be wondering to yourself, depression medicine - is this the best cure
for depression?

 Without external help, your depression could go on for weeks, or it could even stretch over several
years. Medications can help, but finding the right one can also be tricky, especially since effects vary
by person. When you have decided that you wish to use a particular depression treatment, it will be a
good idea to learn everything about it. Here are some of the options that you can consider:

Over the Counter Medications

 There are a number of treatments you can obtain without a prescription. They may work for mild cases
of depression, but do remember to consult your doctor for advice as a precautionary step as well. Also,
just because a supplement or medication is sold over the counter, it does not necessarily mean that it
will not have any side effects. This is especially so when combined with other medications, so you
need to be wary of the ingredients present in them.

 Examples of common herbal depression medicine include St. John's Wort and SAMe
(S-Adenosylmethionine). Both of these can increase the levels of serotonin and other
neurotransmitters in the brain, which are necessary for producing “happy” hormones to overcome
depression. However, you need to watch out for side effects, especially when consuming St. John's
Wort. It can make your skin sensitive to sunlight and your body may also react negatively to it if you are
allergic to its content. 5-HTP (5-hydroxytyptophan) is another popular supplement that can help the
body create more serotonin and improve sleep patterns.

 Fish oil supplements may help people suffering from a lack of Omega-3 fatty acids. In addition,
homeopathic remedies can also help one overcome depression naturally. However, bear in mind that it
is risky to self-prescribe medication without consulting a doctor or therapist first.

Prescription Medications

 Those who suffer from more severe forms of depression may be prescribed depression medication by
a doctor or psychiatrist. Remember that taking these medications should be voluntary. So, if you are
uncomfortable about consuming them, then you should definitely discuss with a medical professional
for better alternatives. There are various types of depression medication available today, including
Tricyclics (TCAs), Serotonin and Noradrenaline Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs), Selective Serotonin
Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), and Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs).

 These are not the only types of prescription drugs that can help you with depression, but they are the
most commonly used ones today. Each medicine improves the way the brain works by producing
chemical effects that can alleviate the symptoms of depression. However, the effect will be different on
each person, so do not be surprised if you have to try out several different options before finding the
cure.

 The depression medication prescribed initially should be one of a very low dose. Then, your doctor
should increase its dosage gradually after positive effects are observed. Medicine will usually be given
to you on top of the regular therapy sessions conducted if your case is severe.

 Do not be discouraged if your doctor or psychiatrist does not appear to have a solution that works
immediately. Be patient and wait for long term results to appear as doing so can change your life
significantly. As such, whether or not depression medicine is the best cure for depression depends on
the individual- his life style, the type of medicine consumed and his body’s response to them.

                                   Major Depression - What You-need-to Know Guide.
                                                               By Steven J. Acren



 Major depression is out of control in our society. Millions of people are on anti-depressants and look
for professional help to improve their suffering. Millions more are on alternative healing remedies such
as St. Jones growth or amino acids. Do these remedies work what can be done to feel better when
major depression comes about? The answer is clearly not simple, and each person must finally be
helped in a tailor-made fashion. However, whether you are seeking help or not, whether you are using
remedies or not, the single most important thing to keep in mind is this: the experience of major
depression should be seen as not you.

It is vital to understand there is you and there is depression. These two things are not the same.
Realizing this deeply is one way to help cure depression. Begin by being aware with depression as if it
were a like another person living in your head. Notice it. I am sure it feels like it just takes you over, so
start exploring that feeling. In other words, begin to gain a little distance from the depression. Begin to
think of it and you. You are a human individual; you are not depression you are not your feelings and
emotions. Feelings and emotions move through whom and what you are, but they are not you.
Underneath the feeling of depression, there is what could be called you: you’re self. However you
define yourself, do not define yourself under the umbrella of depression. You have to get your
self-definition from your full self, the wholeness of what you are. Alternatively, if you do have that label
of depressions on your self, do not take it so literally. Do not take it seriously. Instead, see it as a label.


This un-labeling, to whatever degree it can be done, will offer some distance on any form of major
depression. Then, you will be able to see if there is something else there. Major depression is usually a
layer over another feeling. Find out if that is true in your case. Is there another feeling you were
avoiding are you angry under the depression? Sad? Ask yourself this question; you will start to heal
depression because your sense of self definition will not be so caught up in it. When you derive your
sense of self from all aspects of your character, not just the one feeling of depression, you will have a
better chance to feel at peace. When you do inner work like the above in addition to seeking
professional help and you will truly be helping to cure depression.
