Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) in Adults
Seasonal Affective Disorder, sometimes referred to as SAD, is a form of depression with a seasonal component that begins and ends during a specific season. Mood is negatively affected by decreased light in the fall and winter months leading to symptoms similar to depression. This is more than “winter blues” or “cabin fever.” Symptoms include depressed mood, lack of interest in activities, usually sleeping too much, weight gain, and fatigue. Treatment your psychiatric provider may consider include ordering lab tests, prescribing medications, using light therapy, and individual therapy.
