In brief: Get in therapy!

Get in psychotherapy to explore and resolve underlying issues.
.. Discuss with your therapist potential benefit of medication... Stick with the recommended treatment and if the feelings persist make sure to let your therapist and md know, so they adjust the treatment accordingly... Wishing you well...

In brief: Depression+

First have a medical exam to rule out common medical conditions that can cause depression such as a thyroid condition or other organ malfuctions or abnormality.
If this comes back without a positive finding, then seek a competent psychologist or psychotherapist. Individual therapy along with exercise, diet, adequate sleep, affirmations, good social relationships can all help.
