About depression drugs
According to the WHO, depression is a common mental disorder that contributes significantly to the global burden of disease. It affects people across communities worldwide. It is characterized by sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, feelings of tiredness, and poor concentration. Depression can be roughly categorized into six different types. An individual with severe depression can have suicidal thoughts and behaviors. According to a 2012 estimate by the WHO, about 3,000 suicides take place each day, resulting in more than a million deaths each year. Depression can be recurrent and can be severely debilitating. Patients with mild depression can be treated with medications, but in cases of moderate or severe depression, the patient needs both medication and professional psychotherapy in the form of counseling. According to a 2008 report by the WHO, depression affects men and women equally, but women are more likely to be affected by depression than men. According to the CDC, depression can lead to many adverse behaviors in an individual such as alcoholism, smoking, and sleep disturbance. According to the CDC factsheet, in the US, one in every 10 individuals is affected by depression. According to the NIMH in the US, major depressive disorder is one of the most debilitating disorders in the US and affects about 14.80 million adults aged 18 years and above.
