See your healthcare practitioner, exercise if you are not already doing so, and connect with others.

Get a full work up looking for diabetes, hypothyroidism and menopause. These may mimic depression.

In brief: Call your physician
For a general checkup to rule out medical causes for what you are experiencing.
If you do have depression, find a mental health professional. Medication alone is not the most effective treatment for long-term relief of depression.
