In brief: Maybe

Depression is usually treated with therapy, medication, or both.
All can be equally effective. The decision on treatment usually depends on the severity and duration of symptoms. The choice of treatment should come after a thoughtful conversation with your physician regarding your specific symptoms, situation, and goals for treatment.
