Depression is a psychosomatic condition, characterized by a psychic sense of oppression, anguish, sad mood, which may be exogenous (unpleasant mental reaction to the depressing event) or endogenous (bad mood is associated with physiological status).
Depression is characterized by negative emotional background, slowdown of intellectual work, changes of the motivational sphere and general passivity of behavior. Subjectively, people with depression primary experience heavy, painful emotions and feelings - oppression, sadness, despair. Desire, motivation, volitional activities are dramatically reduced. Thoughts about responsibility for a variety of unpleasant and difficult events in a person’s life or his/her family are typical. Guilt over the events of the past and a sense of helplessness in the face of the future combined with a sense of futility. Dramatically reduced self-esteem. Behavior is characterized by slowness. A person gets tired quickly, there is a lack of energy and all this leads to a decrease in productivity and to even greater depression.
Antidepressants adjust the work of some mechanisms of our brain. The biochemical processes of our brain are complicated and hundreds of different mediators take part in them. Today 30 mediators are allocated but only 3 of them are relevant to depression (serotonin, noradrenaline and dopamine). This is biogenic amines. Antidepressants adjust the mechanisms of the brain that have been violated in the result of depression by adjusting the concentration of one or more biogenic amines.
