How To Deal With Depression In Adolescents Aged 14 Years?
Hello doctor. I am a 14 year old teenager. I have been experiencing depression recently. Because of the many problems that are thought of. So sometimes I just want to kill myself, because I think that all this will have no end. And I think that suicide is the way to end it all. But I tried to dismiss all those thoughts. Sometimes I also consider myself destroyed, because there are so many unfinished problems. What I want to ask is which antidepressant medication is suitable for children my age? Previously I said thank you.
Hello Nida, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Depression is a mood / mood disorder that is characterized by the main symptoms in the form of feeling sad, losing interest, easily feeling tired. And can be accompanied by other symptoms such as decreased appetite, sleep disturbance, feeling guilty or useless, lack of self-confidence, and others.
I suggest you should consult with a psychiatrist or a doctor. Your doctor or psychiatrist will later conduct a psychiatric evaluation of your symptoms, thoughts, feelings, and patterns of your behavior to determine whether you are depressed or not.
The doctor will also provide the appropriate therapy for you. It is better not to buy drugs outside without consulting a doctor or psychiatrist first.
Here are things you can do at home to help deal with complaints: do relaxation to deal with stress, get enough rest, do a healthy lifestyle, avoid consumption of alcoholic beverages and cigarettes, exercise regularly, try to think positively and share your complaints with those closest to you that you believe in.
