dear customer,

There is a subjective test for depression in which you may find how much you are depressed.Since you had the depression earlier also so you should get it treated.

The oral antidepressant drugs like citalopram, fluoxetine, imipramine, etc are used to treat the depression.

The psychotherapy and ECt may also be used to control the symptoms.You should also start the psychotherapy and do the things which interest you more.

The life style changes and daily exercise avoiding alcohol and drugs will also help you to improve the symptoms.
