Hi doctor,

Sometimes, I feel very sad inside. But, I do not know the reason for my sadness. During this period of sadness, I do not like to talk. I feel so depressed as I cannot do anything, including my studies? How to come out of this type of sadness? Please suggest.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Persistent sadness along with decreased interest in communication is an indicative of clinical minor depression. If there are more symptoms, then it can be a major depressive disorder.
  • In case of minor depression, I suggest 5-HTPn (5-Hydroxytryptophan), which is an herbal supplement useful in depression.
  • In case of major depressive disorder, the available options are medicines as well as psychotherapy. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the treatment with consent.
