Hello doctor once again I wanted to ask if there are any other natural supplement for depression? My doctor proscribed me sertraline 50 mg but im afraid to take them and dont want anything to make me feel worse because I dont think im depressed and I noticed that I get things confused like if I was going to say my daughter name I say another name like my son name and I mix words like if I tell my son to go get his sister, It come out like go get your daughter which isnt correct way of saying it.
Hello

Thanks for requesting me
Let me know if you have any follow up questions.

See a phd clinical psychologist to learn cognitive behavioral therapy.
This works as well as medications in many cases.
Let your doctor know that you are doing this so he can monitor you.
Take magnesium, most people with depression or anxiety are low.
Eat a very nutritious diet and exercise.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.

As for my vision changes can it be affected by depression or stress or anxiety?

It can be, but that need to be checked by an eye doctor as well.
And a good neurological exam.
