Anything for depression?

I suffer from depression and have had some bad dreams lately. Is there a prayer I can say?

May God alleviate your suffering. Whenever that happens, recall what Ja`far As-Saadiq, may God have been pleased with him, once said. He said: I am amazed at one who is depressed but does not recite,

“There is no deity except You; sanctified are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.” (21:87)

That’s because I heard God say afterward,

“So We responded to him and saved him from the depression. And thus We rescue the believers. ” (21:88)
