Medication with supportive psychotherapy is most effective treatment of clinical depression. Most people go to a psychiatrist for their disorder and get on medication and in a two or three month process they feel significantly better. As a therapist with over 35 years of experience, I have also seen some that struggle to find the right medication at the right dose for their disorder. I have seen this process take as long as 18 months. This leads to frustration and possibly discontinuing treatment. Now psychiatry can take some of the guesswork out of the medication process. Genetic testing through GeneSight 866-757-9204 can help you and your doctor find the right medication for your body chemistry. Call GeneSight for more information.
Note: I have no relationship with GeneSight; I just hate to see the struggle to find the right medication at the right dose.
