meds are good, but they are not enough.to truly treat depression, you have to work at it..Exercise is the best way to lift serotonin (happy drug in brain) it relieves stress and increases blood flow to organs.start off with 30 minutes a day. It needs to be rigorous enough to break a sweat. your heart rate has to get up past where it normally sits. get at least 7-8hours of sleep a night. try taking unisom at 8pm and waking up around 6, but allow ourself to wake up "naturally."
third, get a therapist. speaking with him or her can help figure out what exactly in your life needs tweaking and recommend to your doctor an appropriate drug... most primary care physicians do not know much about these things, truly. Good luck.
