What about medication?

If depression continues and starts to interfere with your everyday life it is recommended that you consider taking medication to treat the symptoms of depression. Many people with more severe depression find that a combination of both medication and new coping strategies helps them the most.

Back on Track does not prescribe medication. If you are thinking about starting to take anti-depressants or changing your medication you should always discuss this first with your GP or doctor who prescribes for you.
