Various factors can contribute to a patient’s depression. These normally vary from coping reactions and behaviors to how they feel. Based on the type of depression the patient has been diagnosed with, they may experience different symptoms including agitation, negative thinking, restlessness, irritability, weight gain or loss, suicidal thoughts, lethargy and exhaustion, and increased sleep. Also, they might be comparing their level of achievement with others or experience family issues.
