When you are first diagnosed with depression, it can seem overwhelming. There are so many different types of medications and therapies that can treat depression.

In the next couple of posts, I will be describing the various types of medications, therapies, lifestyle changes and alternative medicines that can help treat depression. I am not a doctor and I will not claim anything other than a basic understanding of medicine. I am just trying to set down a basic understanding for everyone.

If you have questions about any of these medications or treatments, please talk your doctor.
