How Does Depression Progress?
In some cases, depressive episodes can resolve on their own, but depression is very likely to recur in most people. Left untreated, depressive symptoms can become more severe and result in significant complications, including:
- Weight gain and its consequences
- Substance abuse
- Anxiety disorders
- Panic disorders
- Relationship dysfunction
- Employment or school dysfunction
- Social anxiety
With treatment, however, symptoms of depression very often are controlled within six months to a year, and continued treatment can be very effective at preventing a recurrence.
