I am on despresstion tablets

Patient : I am on despresstion tablets
Doctor :   Hello Welcome to Ask The Doctor. If you are suffering from Depression, I suppose, you should take help of a Psychiat rist. He would evaluate you with all routine investigations like Hemogram, Blood sugar, Thyroid profile, Vitamin D levels and if any abnormality found, would refer you to a Physician. He will evaluate and discuss with you the problems and difficulties you are facing. He will get you a Psychologist’s counseling done. If he feels, you are severely depressed, he will start you on SSRI's like Escitalopram. You should not take any medicine for depression by yourself. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy
