Current research focuses heavily on external causes of burnout, which does little to help those who are already afflicted. The available treatment seems to be pure lifestyle modification. However, some job requirements and environmental factors can only be modified so much. Additionally, major lifestyle changes like cultivating new friendships may take an extended period of time.
We know that burnout and depression have overlapping symptomatology and the distinction between the two is often vague. The authors of one study support my personal inclination that burnout is actually a work-specific form of depression (sciencedirect.com/science/arti...). Is there any evidence for treating burnout as depression? Could SSRIs and counseling help physicians make necessary life changes without leaving medicine?
