Depression and Anxiety are two common mental illnesses that fall under the purview of psychiatry. Depression is a mood disorder characterized by persistent sadness, feelings of hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable. Symptoms may also include changes in appetite, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating.
Anxiety disorders, on the other hand, are a group of disorders characterized by excessive and persistent worry or fear about everyday situations. Symptoms include physical symptoms such as sweating, shaking, and increased heart rate, as well as psychological symptoms such as restlessness, nervousness, and nervousness. Both depression and anxiety can be treated psychiatrically using a variety of approaches, including medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of both. Common drugs used to treat these symptoms include antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and mood stabilizers.
