SAD (seasonal affective disorder) can be treated by daily exposure to bright artificial lights (PHOTOTHERAPY), during the season of recurrence.
A person's view of himself.
An enzyme that catalyzes the oxidative deamination of naturally occurring monoamines. It is a flavin-containing enzyme that is localized in mitochondrial membranes, whether in nerve terminals, the liver, or other organs. Monoamine oxidase is important in regulating the metabolic degradation of catecholamines and serotonin in neural or target tissues. Hepatic monoamine oxidase has a crucial defensive role in inactivating circulating monoamines or those, such as tyramine, that originate in the gut and are absorbed into the portal circulation.

Predicting delayed anxiety and depression in patients with gastrointestinal cancer. (1/4586)

The aim of this study was to examine the possibility of predicting anxiety and depression 6 months after a cancer diagnosis on the basis of measures of anxiety, depression, coping and subjective distress associated with the diagnosis and to explore the possibility of identifying individual patients with high levels of delayed anxiety and depression associated with the diagnosis. A consecutive series of 159 patients with gastrointestinal cancer were interviewed in connection with the diagnosis, 3 months (non-cured patients only) and 6 months later. The interviews utilized structured questionnaires assessing anxiety and depression [Hospital Anxiety and Depression (HAD) scale], coping [Mental Adjustment to Cancer (MAC) scale] and subjective distress [Impact of Event (IES) scale]. Patient anxiety and depression close to the diagnosis were found to explain approximately 35% of the variance in anxiety and depression that was found 6 months later. The addition of coping and subjective distress measures did little to improve that prediction. A model using (standardized) cut-off scores of moderate to high anxiety, depression (HAD) and intrusive thoughts (IES subscale) close to the diagnosis to identify patients at risk for delayed anxiety and depression achieved a sensitivity of 75% and a specificity of 98%. Levels of anxiety and depression at diagnosis predicted a similar status 6 months later. The results also indicated that the HAD scale in combination with the IES intrusion subscale may be used as a tool for detecting patients at risk of delayed anxiety and depression.  (+info)

Executive function in depression: the role of performance strategies in aiding depressed and non-depressed participants. (2/4586)

OBJECTIVES: Depression has been found to be associated with dysfunction in executive processes, whereas relatively automatic processes are thought to remain intact. Failure to generate or implement adequate performance strategies has been postulated in depressed participants. The present study investigated spontaneous strategy usage in depressed and control participants, and the effectiveness of providing a hint about performance strategies. METHODS: Unipolar depressed participants were compared with matched healthy controls on three tasks sensitive to executive function: memory for categorised words, response suppression, and multiple scheduling. Participants in each group were randomly allocated to strategy aid and no strategy aid conditions. Those in the strategy aid condition were given a hint about the use of an appropriate performance strategy for each task, in addition to the standard instructions given to those in the no strategy aid condition. RESULTS: Depressed participants performed worse than controls on each of the three tasks, and were found to use appropriate performance strategies less often. Provision of strategy hints increased the use of performance strategies in two of the three tasks, memory for categorised words, and response suppression, but did not significantly improve overall performance for either group. CONCLUSIONS: The findings were consistent with the view that depressed participants fail to use appropriate performance strategies spontaneously to the same extent as controls. However, provision of information alone does not seem to be an adequate means of enhancing performance. The role of performance strategies in cognitive impairment in depression is discussed, both in terms of initiating use of such strategies and carrying these out efficiently.  (+info)

Ten year follow-up of depression after diagnosis in general practice. (3/4586)

BACKGROUND: Depression is a serious illness with a high recurrence rate, mortality, and suicide rate, and a substantial loss of quality of life. Long-term course of depression, in particular of patients not referred to specialist care, is not completely clear. We performed a study in which the course of depression in general practice was studied for 10 years after the first diagnosis. AIM: To learn more about long-term course and outcome of patients with depressive illness for a full 10 years after diagnosis. METHOD: A historic cohort study with 386 patients classified as depressive before January 1984, recruited from four general practices belonging to the Continuous Morbidity Registry of the University of Nijmegen in The Netherlands. This cohort was followed up for 10 years. Mortality was compared with a control group matched for age, sex, social class, and practice. Of 222 patients out of this cohort who could be followed up for a full 10 years after diagnosis, the case records were studied in detail. RESULTS: No statistically significant difference was found in mortality between the 386 patients and the control group. Recurrence of depressive episodes did not occur in about 60% of the 222 patients (confidence interval 54% to 67%). Of the depressive patients, 15% were referred to secondary care and 9% were admitted to hospital. CONCLUSION: Mortality, suicide, and recurrence rate were lower than expected, taking into account what is known from depression studies in psychiatry. These results stress the importance of long-term prospective follow-up studies of all patients with depression because of the emphasis on case-finding and treatment without exact knowledge of long-term course and outcome of patients who were not referred.  (+info)

The impact of depression on the physical health of family members. (4/4586)

BACKGROUND: Depressive illness is common. Depression in one family member is associated with an increased incidence of psychopathology in other family members. There are no data on the physical well being of the families of depressed individuals. AIM: To compare physical morbidity of family members of depressed patients with that of family members of comparison patients. METHOD: A comparative follow-up study from case notes. Two hundred and one subjects from 88 families with an index family member diagnosed with depression ('depression families') were compared with 200 subjects from 88 families with a matched index subject without depression ('comparison families'), using the Duke University Illness Severity Scores (ISS) to assess burden of illness experienced by both groups. RESULTS: The cumulative incidence of depression over 11 months in depression families was 8.9% compared to 1.4% in the Family Practice Unit as a whole. Members of depression families had significantly greater ISS than members of comparison families (difference in means = 0.164; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.113-0.215; P < 0.001). Excluding family members with depression (in addition to the index subject), ISS of members of depression families remained significantly greater than the comparison group (difference in means = 0.136; 95% CI 0.083-0.189; P < 0.001). Among depression families, mean ISS was significantly higher after presentation of depression in index subjects compared with before (difference in means = 0.155; 95% CI 0.115-0.194; P < 0.0001). No significant difference was seen between ISS of depression and comparison families before presentation of depression (difference in means = 0.008; 95% CI -0.004-0.058; P = 0.74). CONCLUSION: Depression in patients is associated with increased physical morbidity in their families.  (+info)

Modeling geriatric depression in animals: biochemical and behavioral effects of olfactory bulbectomy in young versus aged rats. (5/4586)

Geriatric depression exhibits biological and therapeutic differences relative to early-onset depression. We studied olfactory bulbectomy (OBX), a paradigm that shares major features of human depression, in young versus aged rats to determine mechanisms underlying these differences. Young OBX rats showed locomotor hyperactivity and a loss of passive avoidance and tactile startle. In contrast, aged OBX animals maintained avoidance and startle responses but showed greater locomotor stimulation; the aged group also exhibited decreased grooming and suppressed feeding with novel presentation of chocolate milk, effects which were not seen in young OBX. These behavioral contrasts were accompanied by greater atrophy of the frontal/parietal cortex and midbrain in aged OBX. Serotonin transporter sites were increased in the cortex and hippocampus of young OBX rats, but were decreased in the aged OBX group. Cell signaling cascades also showed age-dependent effects, with increased adenylyl cyclase responses to monoaminergic stimulation in young OBX but no change or a decrease in aged OBX. These data indicate that there are biological distinctions in effects of OBX in young and aged animals, which, if present in geriatric depression, provide a mechanistic basis for differences in biological markers and drug responses. OBX may provide a useful animal model with which to test therapeutic interventions for geriatric depression.  (+info)

Sustained antidepressant effect of sleep deprivation combined with pindolol in bipolar depression. A placebo-controlled trial. (6/4586)

Total sleep deprivation (TSD) shows powerful but transient clinical effects in patients affected by bipolar depression. Pindolol blocks the serotonergic 5-HT1A autoreceptor, thus improving the antidepressant effect of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. We evaluated the interaction of TSD and pindolol in the treatment of acute episodes of bipolar depression. Forty bipolar depressed inpatients were randomized to receive pindolol 7.5 mg/day or placebo for nine days in combination with three consecutive TSD cycles. Pindolol significantly improved the antidepressant effect of TSD, and prevented the short-term relapse after treatment. The response rate (HDRS scores < 8) at the end of treatment was 15/20 for pindolol, and 3/20 for placebo. Coadministration of pindolol and TSD resulted in a complete response, which could be sustained for six months with lithium salts alone, in 65% of cases. This results suggest a major role for serotonergic transmission in the mechanism of action of TSD, and makes TSD treatment more effective in the treatment of bipolar depression.  (+info)

Depression during the longitudinal course of schizophrenia. (7/4586)

This prospective research investigated the occurrence and persistence of depression during the longitudinal course of schizophrenia. The research goals were to (1) compare depression in schizophrenia with that in schizoaffective and major depressive disorders, (2) assess whether some schizophrenia patients are vulnerable to depression, and (3) assess the relationship of depression to posthospital adjustment in schizophrenia. A total of 70 schizophrenia, 31 schizoaffective depressed, 17 psychotic unipolar major depressed, and 69 nonpsychotic unipolar major depressed patients were assessed during hospitalization and prospectively assessed for depression, psychosis, and posthospital functioning at 4.5- and 7.5-year followups. A large number (30% to 40%) of schizophrenia patients evidenced full depressive syndromes at each followup, including a subgroup of patients who evidenced repeated depression. Even when considering the influence of psychosis on outcome, depression in schizophrenia was associated with poor overall outcome, work impairment, lower activity, dissatisfaction, and suicidal tendencies. During the post-acute phase assessed, neither the rates nor the severity of depressive syndromes differentiated depression in schizophrenia from schizodepressive or major depressive disorders. However, the depressed schizophrenia patients showed poorer posthospital adjustment in terms of less employment, more rehospitalizations, and more psychosis than the patients with primary major depression. The high prevalence of depression in schizophrenia warrants its incorporation into theory about the disorder. A continuum of vulnerability to depression contributes to the heterogeneity of schizophrenia, with some schizophrenia patients being prone to depression even years after the acute phase. Depression in schizophrenia is one factor, in addition to psychosis, associated with poor outcome and requires specific attention to the treatment strategies by psychiatrists.  (+info)

Effects of fluoxetine on the polysomnogram in outpatients with major depression. (8/4586)

This study investigated the effects of open-label fluoxetine (20 mg/d) on the polysomnogram (PSG) in depressed outpatients (n = 58) who were treated for 5 weeks, after which dose escalation was available (< or = 40 mg/d), based on clinical judgment. Thirty-six patients completed all 10 weeks of acute phase treatment and responded (HRS-D < or = 10). PSG assessments were conducted and subjective sleep evaluations were gathered at baseline and at weeks 1, 5, and 10. Of the 36 subjects who completed the acute phase, 17 were reevaluated after 30 weeks on continuation phase treatment and 13 after approximately 7 weeks (range 6-8 weeks) following medication discontinuation. Acute phase treatment in responders was associated with significant increases in REM latency, Stage 1 sleep, and REM density, as well as significant decreases in sleep efficiency, total REM sleep, and Stage 2 sleep. Conversely, subjective measures of sleep indicated a steady improvement during acute phase treatment. After fluoxetine was discontinued, total REM sleep and sleep efficiency were found to be increased as compared to baseline.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: Brain serotonin (5-HT) function is abnormal in major depression, but the involvement of different 5-HT receptor subtypes has been little studied. The availability of selective ligands now makes it possible to test the sensitivity of 5-HT(1D) receptors in patients with depression. AIMS: The aim of the study was to use the 5-HT(1D) receptor agonist, zolmitriptan, to test the sensitivity of 5-HT(1D) receptors in patients with depression before and after treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). METHOD: We measured the growth hormone response to zolmitriptan (5 mg orally) in patients with major depression before and after SSRI treatment. A matched sample of healthy subjects acted as a control group. RESULTS: The growth hormone response to zolmitriptan was blunted in patients with a melancholic depressive syndrome. SSRI treatment produced a marked reduction in zolmitriptan-induced growth hormone release. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with melancholic depression have impaired

Trials comparing different types of psychotherapy for adult depression do not have sufficient power to detect clinically relevant effect sizes. In order to demonstrate a clinically significant effect size of d=0.24, a trial would need to include 548 patients, but the largest comparative trial we found in three major meta-analyses included only 221 patients. This largest trial had only enough power to detect an effect size of d=0.34, and even this trial did not have enough statistical power to detect the mean difference between antidepressant medication and placebo. The implication is that individual trials are heavily underpowered and do not even come close to having sufficient power for detecting clinically relevant effect sizes-let alone smaller effect sizes that may not be clinically significant-but are nevertheless interesting from a scientific point of view.. Meta-analyses may be able to solve this problem. By pooling the effects of multiple studies, clinically relevant effect sizes can be ...

The Portrait of Dr Gachet by the singular Vincent Van Gogh has a fair amount of mystery behind it. It obviously merits a look by us due to its artist having well-described melancholic depression; its significance increases when one is aware that it was only a few months after this painting was completed that his suicide was thought to have happened. It presents clearly a number of features of melancholic depression - the weakened posture with head in hands, Darwins 1872 Omega sign, the sense of preoccupation and distant focus. Then one remembers that this is a picture, not of Van Gogh, but of his clinician.. Van Gogh reportedly had a poor opinion of his psychiatrist/homeopath, declaring him in a letter to his brother Theo sicker than I am, but later claiming to his sister Wihelmina I have found a true friend in Dr Gachet, something like another brother, so much do we resemble each other physically and also mentally. Notably several other photos and pictures of Dr Gachet from around the ...

If after a couple of months you are still experiencing symptoms, or if you cant tolerate the side-effects of the antidepressant there are several options. Your psychiatrist can switch you to a different SSRI or to one from a different class of antidepressants, or they can suggest that you add a second medication to supplement your current one. If you responded partly to the first drug, it makes sense to try a different SSRI or add another medication to it. If you didnt respond at all, its probably more sensible to switch to a different class. This process continues until you the drug or combination of drugs which works for you, and which you tolerate well. Psychiatric patients sometimes call this the med-go-round. It can be frustrating, and the side-effects can sometimes be unpleasant, but ultimately for the severely ill its a worthwhile process, because the right drug (or combination thereof) can help you turn your life around ...

Atypical depression, or depression with atypical features as it has been known in the DSM IV, is depression that shares many of the typical symptoms of the psychiatric syndromes major depression or dysthymia but is characterized by improved mood in response to positive events. In contrast, people with melancholic depression generally do not experience an improved mood in response to normally pleasurable events. Atypical depression also features significant weight gain or an increased appetite, hypersomnia, a heavy sensation in the limbs and interpersonal rejection sensitivity that results in significant social or occupational impairment.[1]. Despite its name, atypical depression does not mean it is uncommon or unusual.[2] The reason for its name is twofold: (1) it was identified with its unique symptoms subsequent to the identification of melancholic depression and (2) its responses to the two different classes of antidepressants that were available at the time were different from ...

It is quite difficult for a person who is suffering from melancholic depression to overcome this mental condition themselves. They definitely require some assistance which is actually available in the form of medication and talk therapy. It is the duty of the loved ones of the suffering to help them seek the treatment because a person suffering from melancholic depression will never have enough motivation to do it themselves.. The three most popular treatment methods of melancholic depression are psychotherapy, medication and in the most extreme case ECT (Electro-Convulsive Therapy) is also used. All three of these methods are obviously used for different types of people and according to the severity of the mental their mental health condition.. People with early symptoms of melancholic depression are often treated with medication. The medicines prescribed to them are mostly anti-depressants which ease their brain by balancing all the chemicals inside it. If the person is suffering in a bit of ...

1. Introduction. Managing depressive symptoms effectively has become an important social issue in South Korea. Cho, Nam, and Suh [1] studied the prevalence of depressive symptoms in Korean adults. They found that 25.3% of Korean adults had depression scores above the cutoff of 16 on the Korean version of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) and 8.6% of those had depression scores above 25 [2] . Depressive symptoms refer to physical and mental states that are accompanied by a depressed mood [3] . In this study, depressive symptoms include negative affect, somatic symptoms, and anhedonia [4] . Negative affect is a depressed mood, which includes dysphoric mood or sadness. Somatic symptoms are somatic complaints such as sleep disturbance or fatigue. Anhedonia is lack of positive affect such as feeling good or happy. Individuals who have salient depressive symptoms usually have impaired psychosocial functioning [5] . Specifically, it has been suggested that differential ...
Clinically depressed individuals that could benefit from newer treatments for depression often do not receive care. Low treatment rates are of particular concern since depression is projected to be the second leading cause of disability worldwide by 2010. Major depression has been the focus of numerous intervention studies with primary care patients during recent years. However, despite advances in the development and testing of quality intervention models for depression treatment, very little is known about the effectiveness of interventions with Latinos. This is important because Latinos are less likely than whites to receive depression treatment, even though the rates of depression are similar for both groups. A major public health challenge is to make available the benefits of intervention developments in depression treatment for all groups in society. As a first step, we examined the impact of a quality depression intervention with Puerto Ricans. The specific aims were:. ...
We found that the BAM intervention had both short-term and long-term effects in reducing depressive symptoms among patients with subthreshold depression in primary care. The between-group mean difference in score was 3.85 points on the BDI-II scale at the time of intervention completion, which was about 22% of the follow-up score in the usual care control arm and exceeds the 17.5% mean clinically important difference identified by Button et al.37 BAM still had a small benefit in reducing subthreshold depression at 12 months. Similar effect sizes for improvements have been reported for individual cognitive behavioral therapy, problem-solving therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, and other individual psychological interventions.38 Generalizability of the BAM intervention to a broader population, such as patients with more severe symptoms or those with dysthymia, is possible but needs further research as our study included only patients who fulfilled the eligibility criteria and had greater ...
Both bipolar disorder and unipolar depression often begin in childhood or adolescence, but it can be difficult to distinguish the two using symptoms only. People with bipolar illness may go a decade without receiving a correct diagnosis. Researcher Jorge Almeida and colleagues recently performed a meta-analysis of previous studies to determine what neural activity is typical of children with bipolar disorder versus children with unipolar depression while processing images of facial emotion. They found that youth with bipolar disorder were more likely to show limbic hyperactivity and cortical hypoactivity during emotional face processing than youth with unipolar depression. Almeida and colleagues hope that this type of data may eventually be used to diagnose these disorders or to measure whether treatment has been successful.. ...

Sunday, May 12, 2002. Childhood Depression Awareness Day Millions of Children Have Mental Health Problems; Most Get No Help ALEXANDRIA, Va. (May 7, 2002) On May 7, and throughout the month of May, thousands of children, families, physicians and advocates are working in communities around the nation to get the word out: Childhood depression is real, common and treatable. According to a report by the U.S. Surgeon General, one in eight teenagers and one in 33 younger children may be clinically depressed on any given day. But less than one-third of children and teens with depression receive any treatment, which could include psychotherapy and medication. Consequences of untreated depression can include social isolation, difficulties at home and school, and an increased risk of suicide. Depression in children and teens can be very painful, says Michael Faenza, president and CEO of NMHA. Because the symptoms of depression look different in youth than in adults, they are often overlooked. Recognizing ...
It also specifies that the patient exhibit two of these four symptoms: overeating, oversleeping, leaden paralysis and sensitivity to rejection that affects quality of life.. Rejection sensitivity is one of the more interesting aspects of atypical depression. People who exhibit this symptom have serious work and social troubles because they overreact to any hint of criticism or rejection. Instead of taking a bosss comments in stride, they may go into a full-blown depressive episode. The terror of being rejected makes it very difficult for them to have romantic relationships and maintain friendships; a small slight or off-hand comment can validate their worst fears.. The other symptoms are, perhaps, easier to quantify. Overeating can be measured by a weight gain of 5 pounds (2.27 kilograms) or more. Oversleeping can be defined by sleeping 10 hours a day (counting naps) or 2 hours more than usual on a regular basis. Leaden paralysis usually lasts for an hour or more a day.. Some compensate by ...
Depression is a leading cause of disability and morbidity with an estimate of more than 300 million people suffering from the disorder worldwide. Depressive disorders are now known to arise in early childhood with marked increases in prevalence with onset of puberty in girls. There are several brief and developmentally specific screeners that can be used in children/adolescent from age 3-18. Children/adolescents with depression suffer from social, emotional and educational impairments. Childhood/adolescent depression are also associated with an increased risk of suicide as well as risk for developing other psychiatric disorders and substance abuse. Over 50% of youth (children/adolescents) with depression will have a recurrence of depression in adulthood. Studies suggest that less than 50% of depressed children/adolescents receive mental health care, thus there is a clear need for screening for depression across health care settings. ...

But while thoughts regarding despair and also within manage overpower anyone, to the point they challenge their particular capacity to stay a standard and also productive existence, it will be possible they may have the system known as being a significant depressive condition (MDD), also referred to as scientific depressive disorder, unipolar depressive disorder or perhaps significant depressive disorder.

PY - 1992. Y1 - 1992. N2 - The functional neuroanatomy of unipolar major depression was investigated using positron emission tomography to measure differences in regional cerebral blood flow (BF). A relatively homogeneous subject group was obtained using criteria for familial pure depressive disease (FPDD), which are based upon family history as well as upon symptoms and course. Because of the absence of certain knowledge about the pathophysiology of mood disorders and their underlying functional neuroanatomy, we used data obtained from the subtraction of composite images from one-half of depressed and control subjects to identify candidate regions of interest. The major cortical region defined in this manner was statistically tested on a second set of subjects. Using this strategy, we found increased ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Four potential criteria for deciding when to use antidepressants or psychotherapy for unipolar depression. T2 - A literature review. AU - Sharpley, Christopher F.. AU - Bitsika, Vicki. PY - 2011/3. Y1 - 2011/3. N2 - Objective. To evaluate the literature supporting four potential criteria for deciding whether to use psychotherapy or pharmacology when treating depression. Method. Literature review of the evidence from the last 10 years on presenting patients demographics, aetiology, comorbidity, and genetic factors, as predictors of treatment outcome efficacy. Results. Demographic information has little support as a potential criteria for decision-making; aetiology (melancholic vs. non-melancholic) has significant support; presence of personality disorder comorbidity is unproven as a criterion but may have some value; genetic predisposition has the strongest evidence supporting it as a criteria for treatment decision-making. Conclusion. Although some presenting cases will be ...
The ADA guidelines recommend that patients with diabetes be routinely screened for psychosocial problems (e.g., depression) with the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ)-2, PHQ-9 (as follow-up if the PHQ-2 is positive), or another validated screening tool.10 If a patient is diagnosed with depression and diabetes, appropriate treatment is essential to lessen the risk of complications. Increased adherence and completion of appropriate self-care behaviors are expected to occur with treatment.15 Additionally, studies suggest that treatment of depression may be associated with normalization of blood glucose.24 Treatment options include pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy (most commonly cognitive-behavioral therapy [CBT]), or a combination of the two. A comparison of PHQ-9 scores throughout the treatment process may be used to evaluate the success of depression intervention in patients with diabetes.12. CBT is effective in alleviating depressive symptoms. Furthermore, beneficial effects on glycemic control ...

Approximately 40-50% of people who experience depression suffer from more than one episode and are therefore categorised as experiencing the recurrent type of this disorder. Identifying predictors for recurrence in these patients is important for a better understanding of its course and for providing opportunities to improve preventive interventions (1).. The link between diet and depression is one that is gaining considerable interest and it has recently been hypothesised that an unhealthy dietary pattern, one that is low in vegetables, fruits, whole grains and fish, and high in refined grains, fast food, meat and sugar, leads to chronic inflammation which, in turn, could raise the risk for depression and depressive disorders (2). The products of an inflammatory response, known as cytokines, are produced by a specific type of dietary fat known as the omega−3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Importantly, cytokines produced by the omega-6 fatty acid AA are considered pro-inflammatory ...

I practise counselling in West Brompton and clients who come to see me there often state that they are depressed. Depression has become one of the most common reasons for people to seek psychotherapy. Perhaps this is because there is less of a stigma to admitting that you may be depressed than there used to be.

A friend once remarked I was a wonderful role model for how to live a great life despite suffering from depression. At the time, I was unable to see the value in that since, the ultimate goal is to be depression free - isnt it? Suffering from depression means were flawed, right? It means theres something wrong with my life in which case, what is there to be proud of?. After several trips out of depression and then descending into the pit of despair over and over again I began to wonder whether or not Id ever be completely free of depression and, more importantly, whether or not it really matters.. Nowadays Im able to see that:. ~ Suffering or not suffering from depression is not whats important ~ How I respond to what occurs in my life (including depression) is. Given that 75% of depression sufferers cycle back into depression at some point, it makes more sense to learn to enjoy your life despite depression rather than endlessly waiting for this wonderful time when you will never be ...

  • When in the depressed cycle, an individual can have any or all of the symptoms of a depressive disorder. (
  • Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder is more common than bipolar disorder before adolescence, and symptoms tend to decrease as an adolescent moves into adulthood. (
  • Screening for even mild depressive symptoms before hip fracture repair may be helpful in predicting which patients are at higher risk of developing delirium after emergency surgery, according to results of a new study by researchers from Johns Hopkins Medicine. (
  • Individuals whose symptoms meet major depressive disorder criteria for 2 years should be given a diagnosis of persistent depressive disorder as well as major depressive disorder. (
  • In order to meet the diagnostic criteria for dysthymic disorder, the symptoms may not be due to the direct physiological effects of the use or abuse of a substance (for instance, alcohol, drugs, or medications) or a general medical condition (e.g., cancer or a stroke). (
  • A major depressive episode is characterized by a low mood or an inability to experience pleasure (anhedonia), or both, for more than 2 weeks, combined with several cognitive and vegetative symptoms and the occurrence of distress or impairment. (
  • During this 2-month period, there is either complete resolution of symptoms or the presence of depressive symptoms that no longer meet the full criteria for a Major Depressive Episode (In Partial Remission). (
  • However, if manic or hypomanic symptoms occur as a direct effect of antidepressant treatment, use of other medications, substance use, or toxin exposure, the diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder remains appropriate and an additional diagnosis of Substance-Induced Mood Disorder, With Manic Features (or With Mixed Features), should be noted. (
  • Similarly, if manic or hypomanic symptoms occur as a direct effect of a general medical condition, the diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder remains appropriate and an additional diagnosis of Mood Disorder Due to a General Medical Condition, With Manic Features (or With Mixed Features), should be noted. (

  • Some symptoms of depressive disorders are more common in children than in adults. (
  • A considerable overlap of symptoms is observed between PDD and major depressive disorder, and the relationship between them is the subject of ongoing debate. (
  • The failure to properly recognize patients who experience symptoms that precipitate those of bipolar disorder or major depressive disorder can lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment. (

  • Major depressive disorder affects over 300 million people worldwide, but so far there have been no established biomarkers that clinicians can rely on to detect early-stage depression symptoms. (
  • The results of research headed by scientists at Japan's Fujita Health University suggest that a metabolite in the kynurenine (KYN) pathway could represent a clinical biomarker for identifying individuals with depression-like symptoms who are at risk of developing major depressive disorder. (
  • Various lines of scientific evidence suggest that tryptophan metabolism is involved in the symptoms of major depressive disorder," Yamamoto noted. (
  • Monitoring the levels of tryptophan metabolites may be useful for the realization of preemptive medicine for depressive symptoms," Saito added. (

  • Her depressive symptoms were then successfully treated with electroconvulsive therapy. (
  • Minor depressive disorder, also known as minor depression, is a mood disorder that does not meet the full criteria for major depressive disorder but at least two depressive symptoms are present for a long time. (
  • These symptoms can be seen in many different psychiatric and mental disorders, which can lead to more specific diagnoses of an individual's condition. (
  • A person is considered to have minor depressive disorder if they experience 2 to 4 depressive symptoms, with one of them being either depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure, during a 2-week period. (
  • Minor depressive disorder is very similar to major depressive disorder in the symptoms present. (
  • A person is considered to have minor depressive disorder if they experience 2 to 4 depressive symptoms during a 2-week period. (

(
  • Minor depressive disorder differs from major depressive disorder in the number of symptoms present with 5 or more symptoms necessary for a diagnosis of major depressive disorder. (
  • Both disorders require either depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure in normal activities to be one of the symptoms and the symptoms need to be present for two weeks or longer. (
  • Dysthymia consists of the same depressive symptoms, but its main differentiable feature is its longer-lasting nature as compared to minor depressive disorder. (
  • There is no laboratory test for the disorder, but testing may be done to rule out physical conditions that can cause similar symptoms. (
  • The aim of the study was to reveal the incidence and time course of depressive symptoms following acute spinal cord injury (SCI) in relation to clinical outcomes for comparison to other neurological disorders with severe impairment. (
  • We related these to the severity of depressive symptoms (no, mild, moderate and severe) based on the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) scores. (
  • The mean 65% of patients showed no depressive symptoms and 30% mild depressive symptoms, while less than 5% presented moderate to severe depressive symptoms. (
  • The prevalence of depressive symptoms following acute SCI is rather low and remains stable within the first year after injury despite the severe neurological impairment and loss of independency. (
  • In comparison to other neurological disorders that also involve brain function SCI patients seem to be less challenged by depressive symptoms that constitute additional burdens to respond to the severe functional impairments. (

(
  • Previous research has suggested that depressive symptoms among moms with eating disorders might improve after the perinatal period, but those studies didn't have a long follow-up period to confirm that the increased risk of depressive symptoms does in fact persist for women who have had an eating disorder. (
  • The new findings show that women who had ever had anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa experienced more depressive symptoms over an 18-year follow-up than those who had never had an eating disorder. (
  • Depressive symptoms in mothers have been shown to be associated with a number of negative outcomes for their children, such as emotional and behavioural problems. (
  • It is therefore important, to identify and treat eating disorders early, as these could be one potential cause of the depressive symptoms," said Solmi. (

  • A single, but positive, trial showed exercise to be better than placebo, but not as good as clomipramine (Anafranil) in short-term reduction of panic disorder symptoms. (
  • In addition, the stigma that is associated with ECT often limits its widespread acceptance as a treatment for depressive symptoms. (
  • The key mediators of this response, called proinflammatory cytokines, can in turn elicit profound changes in behavior, which include the initiation of depressive symptoms such as sad mood, anhedonia, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, and social-behavioral withdrawal. (
  • New research presented at this year's International Early Psychosis Association (IEPA) meeting in Milan, Italy (20-22 October) shows that low vitamin D status is associated with increased negative and depressive symptoms in psychotic disorders. (
