What are anxiety and depression?

Anxiety and depression are common mental health disorders that affect people of all ages. The two conditions often occur together and can cause symptoms that interfere with your ability to enjoy life and meet your responsibilities.



Anxiety is a condition that causes excessive fear or worry and intrusive thoughts that are out of proportion to your circumstances. You might also experience physical symptoms such as a pounding heart, shallow breathing, and excessive sweating.



Depression is a mental health disorder that causes ongoing sadness, hopelessness, and feelings of guilt. People with depression may sleep too much or not enough and have difficulties concentrating.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety and depression?

You should schedule a consultation at D Reddy Narayan if you have symptoms of anxiety or depression that interfere with your daily life or if you isolate yourself from others because of your symptoms.

If left untreated, anxiety and depression can increase your risk for self-harm and thoughts or actions of suicide. If you’re considering suicide or feel like you might hurt yourself or others, you should seek immediate medical help at the nearest hospital or call 911.

Dr. Narayan offers in-office screenings for anxiety and depression to assess the severity of your symptoms. He also reviews your health history and performs a physical exam during your evaluation.

In some cases, you may need bloodwork or other diagnostic testing to rule out medical conditions that can cause symptoms similar to anxiety and depression.

How are anxiety and depression treated?

Your treatment plan for anxiety and depression may involve a combination of medications and psychotherapy (talk therapy).

There are several antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications that can ease your symptoms. Dr. Narayan can determine which is a good fit for your needs and refer you to a professional therapist to learn how to better cope with anxiety and depression.

In addition to advising you to follow your treatment plan, Dr. Narayan can suggest lifestyle and diet changes that help stabilize your mood and boost the effectiveness of your medications. For instance, daily walks and other exercises can keep your mind clear and improve your overall mood.
