Description

Neurotic depression is a type of depression that is characterized by feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and helplessness. It is often accompanied by physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, and loss of appetite. Neurotic depression is caused by a combination of psychological and biological factors, such as a family history of depression, stressful life events, and an imbalance of certain brain chemicals. Treatment for neurotic depression typically involves a combination of psychotherapy, medication, and lifestyle changes.
