ABSTRACT:
Depression may be described as feeling sad, blue, unhappy, miserable, or down in the dumps. Most of us feel this way at one time or another for short periods. True clinical depression is a mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with everyday life for weeks or longer. There are many factors that play role in depression are like alcohol or drug abuse, Divorce, sleeping problem, job loss, death or illness of someone close to you, social isolation etc. Depression can change or distort the way you see yourself, your life, and those around you. People who have depression usually see everything with a more negative attitude, unable to imagine that any problem or situation can be solved in a positive way. Conventional antidepressant drugs are usually associated with many side effects. Sometimes herbal remedies play important role in treatment of depression.
