7. Treatments Take Time To Show Results
There are different types of depression disorders and studies show that people who start taking treatment may not even respond to it initially. Depending upon the kind of disorder the patient has and the reactions to it, doctors may tweak the course of medication or suggest additional therapies accordingly.
There is in fact something called ‘Treatment Resistant Depression’ which affects a good number of people who seek prescribed medication, in the first place. This form of depression does not improve even after 6 weeks of treatment and experts feel that a patient’s genes may be a strong reason behind this. In such cases, patients may be asked to add meditative techniques and other therapies to their daily routine.
