Symptoms of Depression

Symptoms of Depression

Managing the symptoms of depression can be difficult, especially as they may not be limited to one episode and could return without an appropriate treatment plan. Symptoms that persist even after initial antidepressant treatment are referred to as “unresolved symptoms.” The DSM-IV, a medical reference commonly used by healthcare professionals to aid in diagnosis, outlines the symptoms of a major depressive episode, which include many of the following symptoms occurring nearly every day for at least two weeks.

  • -Depressed mood most of the day; feeling sad or empty, tearful.
  • -Significant loss of interest or pleasure in activities that used to be enjoyable.
  • -Significant weight loss (when not dieting) or weight gain; decrease or increase in appetite.
  • -Difficulty sleeping or sleeping too much.
  • -Agitation; or slowing down of thoughts and reduction of physical movements.
  • -Fatigue or loss of energy.
  • -Feelings of worthlessness or inappropriate guilt.
  • -Poor concentration or difficulty making decisions.
  • -Thinking about death or suicide.
