If you feel like you qualify, you can just go to a primary care physician who will ask questions about how you're feeling, and probably schedule a full physical. They can prescribe meds that have been around for many decades.
The thing about feeling depressed is that you suddenly just don't really care. You don't have much desire or motivation to eat or to be active. It's just that you're energy level is at an all time low. All that you really want to do and look at as a refuge of sorts is lay in the bed (even if you're so full of anxiety, that's is hard to fall asleep). And even then, that's really not healthy so you're kind of stuck.
