Hope Will Trickle In

While we know that antidepressants are effective, the feelings of hopelessness that often accompany depression may take longer to lift, especially if you were especially pessimistic before starting antidepressant medication. This is why most physicians recommend that patients couple their medication regimen with psychotherapy. A therapist can help you to change the automatic negative thoughts which serve to promote your depression. This article at WebMD suggests that if you're battling depression, consider adding therapy to your fight against your depression. Hope can and will return!
