The perfect remedy for depression
What are the main treatments for depression? Medication and psychotherapeutic. Sometimes these two approaches, different in their mechanism of action, are artificially opposed to each other.
People with a narrow outlook tend to rush to extremes and declare either the complete failure of psychotherapy, or indiscriminately blame medications, relying only on the saving power of the word. As “the ideal remedy for depression”, we propose a combined approach consisting of an intelligent combination of drug therapy, psychotherapy and some physiotherapy methods.
Treatment of depression begins with a diagnosis, determining the specific type of depression that a particular patient suffers from. Distinguish between psychogenic (associated with the action of traumatic circumstances) and endogenous (associated with malfunctions in the brain at the biochemical level) depression. In the treatment of psychogenic depression, the main emphasis is on psychotherapy, in the treatment of endogenous depression, on drug treatment.
A careful collection of information about the patient’s life, the characteristics of his disorders, helps to determine the type of depression. In addition, pathopsychological examination , a complex of special tests carried out in our clinic, plays a significant role in the diagnosis .
As a drug treatment, we offer therapy with modern antidepressants, to which, depending on the individual patient, other drugs are added.
