  • Seasonal Affective Disorder

    Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a form of depression people experience at a particular time of year or during a particular season. Most of us are affected by the change in seasons it is normal to feel more cheerful and energetic when the sun is shining and the days are longer, or to find that you eat more or sleep longer in winter. However, if you experience SAD, the change in seasons will have a much greater effect on your mood and energy levels, and lead to symptoms of depression that have a significant impact on your day-to-day life.

    We describe 189 patients with SAD; most of them had a bipolar affective disorder, especially bipolar II, and their depressions were generally characterized by hypersomnia, overeating, and carbohydrate craving and seemed to respond to changes in climate and latitude. The positive correlation between latitude and prevalence of winter SAD applied predominantly to the age groups over 20-55.
