Stating that choosing new medicine which could have unexpected side effects is one of the biggest mistake made by new doctors, Prof. Dr. Tosun said that age is not a default of medicine even age can be a virtue for medicine.
Prof. Dr. Tosun stated that depression is a season-related disease and some depressions are classified as “seasonal depressions”. About the claims that depression comes out as a result of a virus, Prof. Dr. Tosun said: “In virus theory, it is discussed whether this disease comes from virus like flue or virus located in body in time. Right now there is no information that virus makes depression but scientific studies continue.”
