Thank you. She is 65. Are there no drugs that will help her choose to live and be happy please? It's all psychological and she doesn't really eat or communicate much. The hospital said they will not be carrying out any further investigations as they cant diagnose her condition in spite of various tests.

You are welcome. Please write your post code. The drug mirtazapine etc are latest and effective for depression. You may inquire with local psychiatric specialist for arranging home visit also.
