Reminder: Don't treat depression as insomnia
Many patients with depression thought they were suffering from insomnia in the early stage, often seeking treatment for insomnia, and some patients even bought sedative and hypnotic drugs to improve insomnia. The common phenomenon is that insomnia seems to improve at the beginning of medication, so that the patient believes in his own judgment more. However, with the development of the disease, the patient feels that the dosage of hypnotic drugs is increasing, but still does not get enough rest, the energy is getting worse, the mood is getting worse, and even other physical problems occur, such as loss of appetite, physical strength, palpitation, chest tightness, shortness of breath, etc. Finally, even insomnia may worsen before going to the hospital.
Finally, the experts of Mental Health Network stressed that to solve the problem of "what to do when men often feel sad", it should depend on different situations. If it is difficult to self-regulate, it is better to consult a professional psychologist as soon as possible and request the doctor's diagnosis and treatment. Especially men who often feel sad and have suicidal thoughts should seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid serious consequences.
