In brief: Talk or meds

Dd is increasingly recognized as a disorder with considerable potential to impair function.
Various forms of talk therapies and antidepressant medications both may be useful, but it can be hard to treat because it tends to be chronic. It also puts people at increased risk for major depression--so called double depression.
