What Conditions Can Benefit from Medication?

Medication can help to lessen the severity of one’s symptoms, whether the individual is dealing with depression, anxiety, or a number of other mental illnesses. For example, consider the following illnesses, which often come with unforgiving negative effects:

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is a severe form of depression, which new or soon-to-be moms might develop. Symptoms include:

  • Feelings of depression
  • Severe mood swings
  • Excessive crying
  • Changes in appetite
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Severe anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Overwhelming fatigue
  • Reduced interest in day to day activities
  • Thoughts of harming you or your baby

Fortunately, both therapy and medication can help. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) prove particularly helpful in helping these moms to manage their symptoms.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is triggered by traumatizing or distressing events, like a violent, near-death, or otherwise threatening experience. Symptoms include:

  • Irritability
  • Social isolation
  • Hypervigilance
  • Anxiety
  • Mistrust
  • Loss of interest
  • Lack of pleasure
  • Loneliness
  • Emotional detachment

The good news is that PTSD is another treatable mental illness. Sufferers can find relief in therapy as well as medication, like an SSRI.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder is marked by excessive, persistent worry about a variety of events. Symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Hypervigilance
  • Restlessness
  • Lack of focus
  • Fear
  • Feeling of impending doom
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Emotional distress

Again, this is a treatable mental illness, of which both therapy and medication prove to help! SSRIs and antidepressants prove particularly helpful in terms of medication for generalized anxiety.
