    Coping With Depression

    Depression

    Sheryl was deeply concerned about her teenage daughter, Tammy, who was struggling with depression and anxiety. Over time, Tammy had been placed on numerous medications and high-frequency treatments.

    Sheryl activated her 2nd.MD membership using the benefits provided through her employer. She wanted a medical second opinion and education regarding the medications and dosages her daughter had been taking. 

    Through the telephone consultation with a top 2nd.MD specialist, she learned about a reasonable medication combination and some possible modifications that Sheryl could discuss with Tammy’s local physician. The specialist also suggested behavioral training which could be beneficial to provide additional coping skills. 

    When a 2nd.MD team member followed up with Sheryl, she said things were going well and they were able to reduce Tammy’s medication dosages.
