Hey I am going to try and answer your quoinsets in the same order you asked them..MILD DEPRESSION:Because this is only the mild form of the disorder, the symptoms are not very severe. Sufferer may carry on with their normal lives, only appearing low in spirits and possibly less sharp in their thinking or in their interest. They may stop doing things they do not actually have to do, but will often continue with the essentials, such as going to work or carring for the family. However, they will tend not to be as conscientious about these things as previously, or will become upset because they feel they are not coping as well as they should because they feel too tired. SEVERE DEPRESSION:Severe Depression includes markedly depressed mood complicated by symptoms such as slowed speech, slowed (or agitated) responses, markedly impaired memory and concentration, excessive (or diminished) sleep, significant weight loss (or weight gain), intense feelings of worthlessness and guilt, recurrent thoughts of suicide, and lack of interest in pleasurable activities. This form of clinical depression is a dangerous and excruciating illness. The emotional structure of the brain has frozen into a pattern of misery that cannot be altered by willpower, a change of scenery, or the most earnest efforts of friends. In a sense, the brain has locked up like a crashed computer.BI - POLARPeople with Bipolar Disorder experience extreme mood swings that can take three different forms: manic, depressive, and mixed episodes. Symptoms can include both a lowering of mood (depression) and an exaggerated elevation of mood (mania). MANIC BI POLAR EPISODESIn a manic episode, some people with Bipolar Disorder may experience an elevated (extremely happy) mood, often described as feeling "on top of the world." Others may feel very agitated and act uncooperative and aggressive, which can be frightening for themselves and others. Patients often report that these episodes result in consequences that must be dealt with after the symptoms fade.A diagnosis for a manic episode includes either an elevated or an irritable mood lasting at least a week plus three or more of the following symptoms: •Talking too fast or too much•Risky or impulsive behavior, like sexual promiscuity or excessive spending sprees•Needing little sleep•Being easily distracted (your attention shifts between many topics in just a few minutes)•Having an inflated feeling of power, greatness, or importance•Intense focus on goal-directed activity•Racing thoughtsDEPRESSIVE BI - POLARA diagnosis for a major depressive episode requires having a depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure in activities a person used to enjoy. In addition, four of the following symptoms must also be present nearly every day for at least two weeks: •Significant weight loss when not dieting or weight gain (i.e., a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month), or decrease or increase in appetite•Insomnia or hypersomnia (excessive sleeping) nearly every day•Feeling restless or sluggish to the point that others notice•Fatigue or loss of energy•Feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt•Diminished ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness•Recurrent thoughts of death (not just fear of dying), recurrent suicidal thoughts without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt or a specific plan for committing suicideMixed episodesA mixed episode includes symptoms that are both manic and depressive. ABILIFY (aripiprazole) is used for the treatment of manic or mixed episodes associated with Bipolar I Disorder in adults and in pediatric patients 10 to 17 years of age.Bipolar is verry different from clinical depression Was this answer helpful?
