Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
October 10th is World Mental Heath Day and this year’s topic, “Depression: A Global Crisis”, hits home for many Americans. Depression affects more than 350 million people of all ages worldwide with as many as 1 in 10 Americans suffering from this debilitating disorder. Depression affects people of all ages, races and incomes. Although it affects both genders, it is twice as common in women as it is in men. Although depression is treatable with medications such as generic Cymbalta and generic Wellbutrin, less than half of Americans diagnosed with depression are receiving adequate treatment. Big Mountain Drugs, an online Canadian pharmacy and international fulfillment center recognizes this growing problem and is offering its customers this ten dollar money saving coupon code, mental10, in support of World Mental Health Day.
Although the exact cause of depression is unknown, many researchers believe it is caused by chemical changes in the brain. Depression varies from person to person but there are some common signs and symptoms. These may include; changes in sleep patterns and appetite, feelings of irritation, agitation or restlessness, difficulty concentrating, feelings of hopelessness or helplessness, loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyed, feelings of worthlessness, self hate or guilt and thoughts of death or suicide. It is important for patients who feel as though they may be suffering from depression to speak with their doctors about treatments such as antidepressants.
There are several types of antidepressant medications and although they all work differently, all are designed to affect certain chemicals in the brain that are responsible for mood. Some people with depression may feel better after taking antidepressants for a few weeks. However, many people need to take the medicine for 4 - 9 months to completely feel better and prevent the depression from returning. Patients who have repeated episodes of depression may need ongoing treatment to prevent their symptoms from returning. These treatments can be costly and ordering medications from Big Mountain Drugs can help patients save money with better prices on prescription drugs, generic versions of popular drugs, money saving coupons and their unique and popular pharmacy rewards program that allows customers to save money on future purchases.
