Hi dingdong,

Psychotic depression is a serious condition that should be treated by a psychiatrist, and almost always requires the use of medication as well as psychotherapy. Psychotic depression implies that you may experience hallucinations or problems with thoughts such as paranoid ones. I encourage you to seek a psychiatrist in your community. Good luck!
