Are you depressed? Depression symptoms & signs

If you identify with several of the following signs and symptoms, and they just won’t go away, you may be suffering from clinical depression:

  • you can’t sleep or you sleep too much
  • you can’t concentrate or find that previously easy tasks are now difficult
  • you feel hopeless and helpless
  • you can’t control your negative thoughts, no matter how much you try
  • you have lost your appetite or you can’t stop eating
  • you are much more irritable, short-tempered, or aggressive than usual
  • you’re consuming more alcohol than normal or engaging in other reckless behavior
  • you have thoughts that life is not worth living (seek help immediately if this is the case)

If you are experiencing any of the above depression symptoms, the good news is that depression is a highly treatable. Unlike some other mental health disorders, clinical depression is rooted in chemical imbalances in the brain. Once diagnosed, there are a number of effective medications on the market that can correct serotonin and norepinephrine imbalances in the brain, thus helping you feel better. Even severe cases of depression, that are classified as treatment-resistant, are now treatable without hospitalization. At Dr. Rodriguez’s center in Delray Beach, we offer both Ketamine IV Infusion Therapy and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy specifically designed for severe, chronic depression. Our team of licensed psychotherapists also provide a safe space to talk about your problems.
