What to do for Dysthymia?

Question:

I know I suffer from dysthymia because I've been comparing my depression symptoms to those written about in books that I've been reading and also from the Internet. I consider myself a failure with no self-esteem, and no motivation. I also feel that I am very slow. Can you please advise on the best antidepressants for dysthymia? What would you recommend between Prozac and St. Johns Wart for my case?

Please help, I'm so desperate to get my life together.

Julia (23 year-old woman) from TX.

Answer:

Dear Julia,

It sounds like you have been doing a lot of research in an attempt to better understand your feelings. The fact that you sent this question shows that you are taking yourself and your health seriously. I do not feel that it would be in your best interest to recommend a medication to you with the small amount of information contained in your question. I would recommend that you seek the advice of a psychiatrist who is trained and licensed to make such diagnoses and prescribe medication. In this way, you will feel confident that you have the best treatment for yourself. You may locate a psychiatrist in your area by consulting your yellow pages or you can seek referrals through some of the other sources listed below.

It can be difficult to ask for help. You have taken the first step by sending this email question. If you do not yet feel ready to speak to someone in person, here are a few more online resources:

I WISH you the best!
