What We Treat

Mild to Moderate Depression

Read more

Depression is a mood disorder that makes you feel sad and/or disinterested in the world around you. Unlike normal sadness, which may come and go, depression lasts for at least two weeks (and often much longer), includes additional symptoms and interferes with your ability to function in everyday life.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Read more

Seasonal affective disorder is a form of depression marked by mood changes during the fall and winter months when there is less sunlight. Symptoms improve or disappear when the days get longer in the spring. SAD symptoms interfere with work, relationships and daily function.

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)

Read more

PMDD is an extreme form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) that causes severe and disruptive depression in some people with periods in the days or weeks before their period starts, and symptoms usually go away within a couple of days after menstruation begins.

Postpartum & Menopause Depression

Read more

After a woman gives birth hormonal fluctuations may lead to persistent feelings or sadness or emptiness called postpartum depression. Similarly, the hormonal fluctuations that accompany menopause can lead to depression and treatment with an SSRI can be a helpful addition in the overall management of menopause (which also includes hormone replacement therapy, which Nurx does not prescribe).

Depression Treatment

If medically appropriate, your Nurx medical provider will create a depression treatment plan for youafter reviewing your health history and symptoms. Initial treatment is usually daily medication called a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), and Nurx prescribes and delivers a few different SSRIs as well as other medications (SNRIs, tricyclics, bupropion and trazodone). Individual factors determine which medication will be most effective and our medical provider will partner with you to get it right. Treatment usually works best when combined with non-medical therapy such as talk therapy.

Got Any Questions?

  • How does depression treatment with Nurx work?

    Whether you suspect you are experiencing depression or have been diagnosed with these conditions in the past, you can request treatment from Nurx any time through our website or app. You’ll answer a comprehensive set of questions similar to the intake you would complete when starting treatment with an in-person mental health professional. Your answers to these questions will allow your Nurx medical provider to evaluate your symptoms, make a diagnosis and (if medically appropriate) create a treatment plan.

    Within two days of submitting your request for treatment a Nurx medical provider licensed in your state will send a message to your Nurx account to ask any follow up questions and propose a treatment plan. You’ll have the chance to share any information and ask any questions you’d like. Once your medical provider has prescribed treatment our pharmacy will fill your prescription and your medication will arrive in the mail.

    Your medical provider will follow up regularly to monitor how your medication is working, and adjust treatment as needed, and you can message them any time with questions or to request adjustments.

  • How much does depression treatment with Nurx cost?

    Treatment through Nurx costs $65 for the initial consultation and $55 per month for ongoing medication management, which includes a licensed medical provider evaluating your intake assessment, creating and prescribing your treatment plan, and managing your medication needs on an ongoing basis.

    We bill insurance for your medication, and copays are usually $5-10 per month. The out-of-pocket price for most medication is $25 per month, and shipping is always free.

  • What medications does Nurx prescribe for depression?

    Your Nurx medical provider will create a personalized treatment plan based on your symptoms and health history. Nurx prescribes and delivers a comprehensive selection of mental health treatments including SSRIs, SNRIs, tricyclic antidepressants, bupropion (generic Wellbutrin), trazodone, and medications that may be used to treat panic attacks. The Nurx medical team prescribes these treatments according to evidence-based clinical guidelines and based on each patient’s individual symptoms and health history.

  • What types of depression does Nurx treat?

    Nurx treats mild to moderate depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and premenstrual dysmorphic disorder (PMDD). We may also treat patients with stable postpartum depression, if they are already on medication. However, our medical team evaluates each patient individually and will only prescribe treatment to patients who they determine can be safely and appropriately cared for through telehealth.

  • What does the $65/month cover?

    There isn’t a one-size-fits all treatment for mental health conditions — the medication/s and the dose that work best varies by individual patient and may change for that patient over time. For that reason, you may need to communicate with our medical team regularly at the beginning of your treatment to make sure you achieve good results. Once your treatment plan is established our medical team will check in throughout the year, to confirm that the treatment is working and adjust if needed. Nurx patients can message the medical team any time to ask questions about their treatment or request prescription adjustments. This ongoing care and unlimited access to our medical team costs $65 for the initial consultation (in addition to the copay or cost of your medication) and $55 per month for ongoing medication management, even if there are months when you don’t communicate with us. Please note that Nurx does not provide therapy or counseling.

  • Does Nurx offer online therapy?

    Nurx does not currently offer therapy or counseling. For therapy resources, including finding a therapist and digital support based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) click here.
