How to Get Rid of Neurotic depression


-------any state of depression that is not psychotic (noun)-------

Neurotic disorders are mental disorders without any demonstrable organic basis in which the patient may have considerable insight and has unimpaired reality testing, in that he usually does not confuse his morbid subjective experiences and fantasies with external reality.

There is suggestive evidence that symptoms generally thought to characterize neurotic depression may conduce to referral to psychiatric services. The neurotic depressive syndrome as classically conceived may therefore be an artificial one, created by selective factors bringing patients with particular symptoms into hospital populations.

Alternative Names:

Neurotic depression (dysthymia); Dysthymic disorder; Chronic depression

Causes, incidence, and risk factors:

The cause is unknown. The symptoms are not as severe as depression . However, affected people struggle most days with symptoms of depressed mood. It occurs more frequently in women than men and generally persists over a period of years. It can occur in children.

The overall outlook is good with treatment but the disorder may persist for several years. There are usually no major complications. Call for an appointment with your health care provider if you suffer from a persistent depressed mood.
