Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am really sorry to know that you are not feeling too good.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

With the symptoms that you are describing you are most likely suffering from depression.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You need to contact your GP as you will most likely require medications like citalopram (which is an antidepressant) for the treatment of your problem. Along with that, counselling therapy is also something that will help in your case.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So you definitely need to be seen for this.
Plus if you have not had your blood work up done I would have your complete blood workup done to rule out problems like a thyroid problem which can also cause these symptoms.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you following me?

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.

I know I have depression but I can not get in to see my doctor. the doctor who I used and was really good has left. and I have tried tio get to see new one but cant get an appointment . so what is the point..

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.
I understand your concerns.
I would have felt the same way if I were you.
I would like that you should keep persisting until you get an appointment.
It is not possible for me to prescribe you something online as my prescription would not be valid.
I would like that you should be determined and keep persisting until you get an appointment at an early date.
