How is depression treated?
Depression can be treated with either drugs or talking treatment, or with both of these strategies. Antidepressant medicines work by enhancing the action of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. The most important ones are serotinin and norepinephrine. Their function is to transfer nerve impulses from one nerve cell to another, like ferries transporting trucks from one side of a river to the other, so they can continue.
