Doctor: We have noted your concerns. The treatment of depression needs careful consideration. Please do visit your psychiatris t to confirm whether dose is sufficient or to increase or add another / other drugs. With the best of treatments, some residual or personality treated issues or milder depression likely dysthymia may persist in the intervening period, which can make you procrastinate. Psychotherapy, counseling or cognitive behavior therapy may help. Please do discuss with your doctor.
