Depression is extremely common affecting up to twenty percent of the population at some point during their life span. It is relatively easily treatable with up to eighty percent of those treated reporting significant improvement. Unfortunately, many people who are depressed do not present themselves for treatment. Depression and mania are classified as mood disorders. They have also been known as Affective Disorders. They can occur separately or in combination. Depression can range from mild to moderate to severe. It can be brief or long lasting. Criteria for a Major Depressive Episode include:
  • Depressed Mood such as feeling sad, empty, or tearful. Lack of interest in or deriving pleasure from most activities. Weight loss or gain of over 5% of body weight. Insomnia or hypersomnia.

    Treating mood disorders in Drug Abuse Patients Yields Improvement in Both Conditions. For many drug abuse patients, mood disorders are a constant companion.

    Treating Mood Disorders in Drug Abuse Patients Yields Improvement in Both Conditions
    By Patrick Zickler , NIDA NOTES Staff Writer For many drug abuse patients, mood disorders are a constant companion. Among cocaine abusers, for example, depressive disorders are the most commonly diagnosed coexisting, or comorbid, conditions. The relationship between mood disorders and drug abuse in these patients is often complex and interconnected: Drug abuse patients may develop depression as a result of the physical and psychological suffering associated with their drug use, and patients suffering from mood disorders may become drug dependent in attempts to self-medicate. For patients suffering from both drug abuse and mood disorders, the conditions once seemed impossible to untangle, but recent NIDA research suggests that treatment for the mood disorder alone also can have a positive effect on drug abuse treatment. One NIDA-supported study found that drug use declined among teenage drug dependence patients being treated with a medication for bipolar disorder, which is characterized by alternating periods of depression and mania. In a related study, chronic opiate-dependent adults reported less drug abuse when they were treated with the antidepressant imipramine for comorbid depression. Reducing Substance Dependence in Bipolar Teens Lithium has proven effective in treating adult bipolar disorder patients and research with adult patients suggests that lithium also may be an effective treatment for comorbid substance dependence. However, no double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have tested the therapy in adolescents. Now, at Washington University in St. Louis, Dr. Barbara Geller and her colleagues have found that, in adolescent patients, lithium treatment for the manic phase of bipolar disorder also reduces drug and alcohol dependence.

    Mood Disorders Statistics Seven to 14 percent of children will experience an episode of major depression before the age of 15. And, while major depressive disorder can develop at any age, the average age at onset is the mid-20s. Twenty to 30 percent of adult bipolar patients report having their first manic episode before the age of 20. Out of 100,000 adolescents, 2,000 to 3,000 will have a mood disorder, of which eight to 10 will commit suicide. Dysthymic disorder, which often begins in childhood, adolescence, or early adulthood, affects nearly 10.9 million American adults each year. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) report the following:
    • Research indicates that depression onset is occurring earlier in life today than in past decades.
    • Early-onset depression often persists, recurs, and continues into adulthood. Depression in youth may also predict more severe illness in adulthood.

    The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) defines the criteria for a wide array of mental illnesses. Most psychiatrists use it as a basis for diagnosing patients since insurance companies and hospitals like nice, orderly forms. Yet, they tend to focus more on alleviating symptoms with medication and other therapy than on attempting to fit people into strictly defined categories. Researchers frequently use the criteria as defined in the DSM-IV to ensure consistency across clinical trials. However, some researchers wanting more flexibility use a modified form of the DSM-IV criteria, such as creating a new diagnostic category. (You may see some people mention Bipolar III, IV, etc. and other categories not part of the DSM-IV).
