What is Depression?
Depression is a mental health disorder characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, loss of interest or pleasure in activities, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, low energy, difficulty concentrating, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, and in severe cases, thoughts of self-harm or suicide.
What is Treatment Resistant Depression?
Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) refers to a form of major depressive disorder (MDD) that doesn’t respond adequately to standard treatments. Standard treatments for depression typically include various forms of psychotherapy, medications, or a combination of both. In the case of treatment-resistant depression, individuals may not experience relief from their symptoms despite trying multiple medications or therapeutic interventions.
The exact definition of TRD can vary, but it generally means that a person’s depression persists despite undergoing two or more adequate trials of different antidepressant medications at an appropriate dose and duration. It may also include cases where depressive symptoms persist despite multiple attempts at psychotherapy.
Dealing with treatment-resistant depression can be particularly challenging, as it requires a more comprehensive and sometimes innovative approach to address the complex factors contributing to the condition. Emerging treatments, such as Ketamine-Assisted Therapy, are being explored for their potential effectiveness in cases of treatment-resistant depression.
