Your friend would be best off being evaluated back in her home country. She needs someone who can fully comprehend her condition. Any medication can be continued here easily if required. 

 

It's premature to suggest specific therapies without a diagnosis. Depression? Chemical imbalance? PTSD? Hormonal? And it's probably not a good idea to accept a prescription if the doctor hasn't made a diagnosis. Thai psychologists push Prozac like Halloween candy, partly because they don't do CBT, or what we know in general as psychotherapy or talk therapy, not for Thais and not for westerners. Instead, they do 10-minute prescription renewals.
