Medication is one aspect of help available to depressives. Anti depressive drugs do act to raise the mood of individuals chemically but they are not sufficient in themselves to 'cure' depression. The mindset of the depressed individual may ot be altered to help a person view the world in a more positive manner.

cognitive analytic therapy may be helpful. The depressive person needs to properly recognise and analyse their faulty thought process and move it from negative outlook to positive. Artistic pursuits do help many so hat feeings can be expressed in a safe manner.

Antidepressants cannot cure depression but it can help people function almost normally for a temporary period of time. Antidepressants are considered to get rid of some symptoms that people are trying to get rid of or avoid. Some people have to take antidepressants for a short period of time. As they recover from their depression, the dosage is lessened then removed entirely. People with chronic depression are different.

They may need to take a certain amount of antidepressants so that they can function normally in their day-to-day life. People with mild depression are recommended to try other methods that will help them become more relaxed as these antidepressants also come with some side effects.
