Hello, it sounds like your mother is taking Relax made by Mektum and composed of acetaminophen, the ingredient in Tylenol and diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain medicine. This will help for minor body aches and pains but not for her depression. She should see a psychiatrist or other mental health provider for an evaluation and to discuss tx options such as meds and/or therapy.

Depression can become a serious medical challenge and the sooner it is addressed, the better. You need to find a psychiatrist or psychologist ASAP.
