Patient discussion about prescription drug

Q. Can you provide information about how depression can be cured without prescription medications? I was working at a MNC with a high designation. Because of the internal politics I was sent out with a label ‘irresponsible.’ Each and everyone on the chairman’s committee knows very well about my hard work and the benefits they had gotten because of me. This wrong news has gone down the corporate grapevine to other companies and they are not accepting my application. I went into depression and was sick. I have spent all my hard-earned money on medications. Now my pocket is empty. No-one is there to help. I don’t need money from you now but can you provide information about how depression can be cured without prescription medications?
