How can we be of assistance?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 3 years ago.
I have tried to establish a discussion, but have not heard back.

There are many medicines that may be able to help in this situation. There are a variety of antidepressants, including medicines that selectively affect serotonin, such as sertraline or citalopram, or that affect both serotonin and norepinephrine, such as venlafaxine or duloxetine. There also are some mood stabilizers that can be used to augment the effect of the antidepressants.

Counselling also may be helpful, although different people respond more or less to counselling.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
