Antidepressant and depressant

What's the differences between CNS  depression? May i know what's the causes of depression? Does it relate to the neurotransmitter? Diazepam is an anti-depressant? It enhances the effect of GABA by binding to the benzodiazepine site on the GABA A-receptor. After binding to the receptor, may i know what's the next mechanism? GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter? If GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, how does diazepam can cause anti-depress? I heard that it can treat seizure? Seizure is a disease that is  over-stimulation, repetitive, uncontrolled neuronal firing in CNS. May I know how does it treat seizure? Thanks.

You're asking very detailed, very specific physiologic questions.  The truth is, there are only accepted theories behind what causes Depression.  You really need to speak with your doctor and try to sort through your symptoms.

Are you having problems with Depression?
