Q: I am on despresstion tablets

Doctor

A:   Hello
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.

If you are suffering from Depression, I suppose, you should take help of a Psychiatrist.
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
