Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 17 years old. I was quite a good-scoring child in high school, but now I cannot focus on anything. I thought to have a very positive approach, but now I lost my willingness and energy. I have also suffered from depression for over three years and am suffering from it presently. I have consulted and taken medication for it, but now it has become severe. However, I do not want to destroy myself.

Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

It seems that you are again going through depression. So consult a psychiatrist in person for evaluation and management.

Besides Medicines, you need to do the below-mentioned things,

  1. Go for a regular brisk walk.

  2. Take healthy food.

  3. Do exercise.

  4. Spend time with family members or friends.

  5. Spend time on your hobbies.

  6. Maintain good sleep cycles.

  7. Keep a positive attitude.

    Hope this helps you.

    Thanks and regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
