You might have a biological vulnerability to depression. It is possible that your depression was triggered by the stress of your financial woes. However, once triggered, the biological depression might continue even after the precipitating stress is resolved.

There are many factors that must be considered when deciding whether or not to continue with treatment. When treating severe depression, some doctors recommend that one remain on an antidepressant for about a year, even if it is the first episode. However, if you have a history of recurrence, you might need to take medication indefinitely. Many other physiological medical conditions like high blood pressure require long-term medication. Biological depression is no different.
