    Major Depressive Episode Symptoms
    A description of the symptoms associated with major depressive disorder. A major depressive episode is not a disorder in itself, but rather is a description of part of a disorder, most often major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder.

    A person who suffers from a major depressive episode must either have a depressed mood or a loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities consistently for at least a 2 week period. This mood must represent a change from the person's normal mood; social, occupational, educational or other important functioning must also be negatively impaired by the change in mood. - 25-May-2000 - Hits: 4185 - Rate This | Details
