I am a 55-year-old man. I have been suffering from depression for the last five months. I have been feeling tired and hopeless. I want your help for recovery. I am currently on Fluvoxin 50 mg BD.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern. Depressive disorder or depression is a neurochemical disorder.
A suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression.
You should be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder and not a mental disease.
These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other modalities like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, lifestyle changes, etc.
