One should realize that depression is a product of misplaced expectations. Medicines are just palliative with hosts of adverse effects and dependence but the cure is within. Look out for a counselor near you.

Consult a psychiatrist first, so that a thorough evaluation can rule out any medical cause or comorbidity and severity be assessed. Accordingly, medication or therapy or both can be chosen for her.
