Depression often accompanies anxiety disorders and, when it does, it needs to be treated as well.
Symptoms of depression include:
- Feelings of sadness
- Changes in appetite or sleep
- Low energy
- Difficulty concentrating
There is help for depression. Most people with depression can be effectively treated with antidepressant medications, certain types of psychotherapy, or a combination of both.
Addressing the depression will allow anxiety to be treated, whether it is affecting you in the form of a panic attack, obsessive compulsive behavior or social phobia.
