Avoid alcohol for a while, it is a depressant. Stay away from recreational drugs as while, which will help nothing.

Dr. Rao, is correct! It is worthwhile to have a physical too, by your doc, to make sure you don't have a physical reason for your symptoms, like thyroid hormone dysfunction. Do get checked! You'll get on track again quicker, as soon as people who are experts at this are involved.
