What are signs of depression?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Pamela Pappas
41 years experience in Psychiatry
Many: Signs of depression include sad mood with loss of interest in activities you usually enjoy, for 2 weeks or more. Also changes in energy, appetite (either eating more or much less than usual), and sleep (either sleeping much more than usual or having disturbed sleep -- especially early morning awakening). Libido is often lost during depression. Please see a mental health professional for these.
