What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Treatment-Resistant Depression?
You may have treatment-resistant depression if you’ve been treated for depression, but your symptoms haven’t improved. In most cases, depression symptoms can be eased by taking antidepressants or visiting a psychologist (psychotherapy). However, standard treatments aren’t enough for treatment-resistant depression. There is the possibility that they won’t help much at all, or they may improve your symptoms only to recur later on. This is defined by some researchers as depression that does not respond to two antidepressants of different classes. Depression must be treated with four different treatments before it can truly be considered treatment-resistant, according to other experts.
