Atypical Depression and Its Treatment

Atypical depression, a subtype of major depressive disorder, is characterized by specific symptoms that differentiate it from other forms of depression. Individuals with atypical depression may experience mood reactivity (mood improvement in response to positive events), increased appetite or weight gain, excessive sleepiness, a heavy feeling in the limbs, and heightened sensitivity to rejection. These symptoms can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life, relationships, and daily functioning.

Atypical depression treatment is designed for individuals diagnosed with the condition or experiencing symptoms indicative of atypical depression. Treatment aims to help individuals manage their symptoms, improve overall functioning, and enhance their quality of life. A combination of psychotherapy, counseling, and medication is typically employed to achieve these goals, with treatment being tailored to the individual’s unique needs and circumstances.

Associated Issues and Difficulties

Atypical depression can result in a range of cognitive, affective, and psychological issues. Because of their increased sensitivity to rejection, people may experience a social retreat, feelings of worthlessness, and difficulty sustaining relationships. Atypical depression can also have a significant impact on one’s physical health since it increases hunger and causes excessive drowsiness, which can lead to lethargy, weight gain, and other health issues.

In addition, those who have atypical depression are more likely to experience other mental health issues including anxiety disorders, which can make their problems worse.

What to Expect During Atypical Depression Treatment

Atypical depression treatment typically involves a combination of psychotherapy, counseling, and medication. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) are common therapeutic approaches used to address the symptoms of atypical depression. These therapies aim to help individuals identify and challenge negative thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that contribute to their depressive symptoms.

Treatment sessions focus on building skills such as emotional regulation, improving communication, and enhancing problem-solving abilities. Medication, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or other antidepressants, may be prescribed to help manage symptoms and improve mood.

People with atypical depression can have significant symptomatic relief, improved emotional control, and improved overall functioning with regular and individualized therapy. Depending on the patient, treatment progress might vary, but with persistence and a solid support network, considerable changes can be made.

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis

My first visit with Dr. Rudoy was better than expected. He was thorough and heard my concerns. I look forward to a positive doctor/patient relationship. I highly recommend the practice.
