Seasonal Affective Disorder Current Opinion in Psychiatry, January 1994
Raymond W. Lam, M.D.
Recent research on seasonal affective disorder (SAD) has refined the diagnostic criteria and highlighted the heterogeneous nature of the disorder. Recent light therapy studies show improved methodology, but some negative studies add to the controversy over non-specific (placebo) effects of light exposure. Several psychobiologic studies generated interesting data, but the pathophysiology of SAD remains elusive and unconfirmed. to top
The decade since the publication of Rosenthal et al's 1984 paper [1] defining seasonal affective disorder (SAD) has seen remarkable research interest into the seasonality of mood disorders and treatment with bright light. For example, Medline has included a separate Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) for seasonal affective disorder, and over 100 articles have been indexed since-1991 alone. In the past year, publications have focused on the diagnosis, symptomatology, epidemiology, and light therapy of SAD. to top
Symptoms And Diagnosis
The validity of SAD as a diagnosis has received attention because of the impending publication of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV) [2,3*]. Draft diagnostic criteria for seasonal pattern (Table 1) were revised according to empiric data and consensus in the field [4*]. SAD continues to be classified as a 'seasonal pattern' for unipolar and bipolar mood disorders, and is included as one of several 'course specifiers' of the major mood disorders (along with rapid cycling and post partum).

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder?
Some people suffer from symptoms of depression during the winter months, with symptoms subsiding during the spring and summer months. This may be a sign of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD is a mood disorder associated with depression episodes and related to seasonal variations of light.
fact sheet index
Symptoms Include:
  • regularly occurring symptoms of depression (excessive eating and sleeping, weight gain) during the fall or winter months. a craving for sugary and/or starchy foods.
Possible Cause of this Disorder
Melatonin, a sleep-related hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain, has been linked to SAD. This hormone, which may cause symptoms of depression, is produced at increased levels in the dark. Therefore, when the days are shorter and darker the production of this hormone increases. Treatments

Seasonal Affective Disorder What is seasonal affective disorder?
Seasonal affective disorder (also called SAD) is a type of depression that follows the seasons. The most common type of SAD is called winter depression. It usually begins in late fall or early winter and goes away by summer. A less common type of SAD, known as summer depression, usually begins in the late spring or early summer. It goes away by winter. SAD may be related to changes in the amount of daylight during different times of the year. How common is SAD? As many as 6 of every 100 people in the United States may have winter depression. Another 10% to 20% may experience mild SAD. SAD is more common in women than in men. Although some children and teenagers get SAD, it usually doesn't start in people younger than 20 years of age. For adults, the risk of SAD decreases as they get older. SAD is more common in northern geographic regions. How does my doctor know I have SAD? Although your symptoms are clues to the diagnosis, not everyone with SAD has the same symptoms. Common symptoms of winter depression include the following:
  • A change in appetite, especially a craving for sweet or starchy foods

Gila Lindsley, Ph.D., A.C.P. Celebrating the Thanksgiving festival begins our final descent down to the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. As the last of the leaves fall from the trees and the sun sinks lower and lower on the horizon the spirits of some sink with it; and as the days grow shorter and shorter, shorter too grows the memory of sunshine and warmth. With the New England overcast sky above, the blustery winds and the trees now barren of leaves, how difficult it is for many to keep the inner fires burning. Many become SAD. That is, many may develop Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Surely not everyone succumbs to the blahs or the blues in wintertime. The vigor, joy and pleasure of winter skiers; the surge of energy and increased appetites many people feel once the summer's heat has lifted; these surely speak to the happiness and pleasure winter brings for some.

We treated her with bright light, and discovered soon thereafter that she had an unusual amount of company when the lights were on. Even her personal counselor mysteriously re-arranged the scheduling of counseling sessions so they "just happened" to coincide with this woman's bright light sessions! The lights lit up the lives of many people that winter.

Seasonal Affective Disorder Real and Treatable
Seasonal affective disorder light therapy recommendations range from 2,500 to 10,000 "lux" (lux is a measure of how bright a light is), and a treatment of from 30 minutes to two hours. Although a few sources recommend "full spectrum light", others say it doesn’t matter, and that what counts is how bright the light source (as long as it is UV shielded and does not exceed 10,000 lux). The maximum recommended amount of artificial light is "10,000 lux" which is about the same brightness as a cloudy mid-day in Alaska in winter. A sunny day in midsummer further south generates about 80,000 lux. Support Group and Discussion Forum Click Here Depressed? you are not alone.

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder?
Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) is a specific type of major depression, one which reoccurs at specific times of the year. The most common pattern is the onset of major depression in the fall (September through November) and abating of the symptoms in late winter to early spring (March through May). There are other people who experience periods of abnormally high or euphoric mood between major depressive episodes. The frequency of SAD seems to vary with geographic location. It may approach 10% of the general population in northern New England, 5% of the population in the Baltimore/Washington area, and less than 2% of the population of Southern California or Florida. How is S.A.D. similar

What is Clinical Depression? In the normal course of life, everyone has times when they feel somewhat less than happy and optimistic. Although many people attribute their feelings of sadness or lethargy to the onset of depression, it's important to understand that medical professionals have specific indicators that they use to make a diagnosis of clinical depression. When you know more about what's wrong you can make it right. Let's start with the word "clinical." By definition, a condition is clinical if it is directly observed. That is, the professional does not count on a patient's self-report but is more likely to check for symptoms of depression that can be observed and documented. Clinical depression is a phrase used to describe a condition serious enough to require clinical (professional) and possibly pharmacological intervention. Clinical depression, according to medical sources, lasts more than two weeks and is usually not precipitated by anything external.

That is, exposure, for up to four hours per day (average 1-2 hours) to very bright light, at least ten times the intensity of ordinary domestic lighting. Ordinary light bulbs and fittings are not strong enough. Average domestic or office lighting emits an intensity of 200-500 lux but the minimum dose, necessary to treat SAD is 2500 lux, The intensity of a bright summer day can be 100,000 lux! Light treatment should be used daily in Winter (and dull periods in summer) starting in early Autumn when the first symptoms appear. It consists of sitting two to three feet away from a specially designed light box, usually on a table, allowing the light to shine directly through the eyes.

    Seasonal Affective Disorder
    If you notice periods of depression that seem to accompany seasonal changes during the year, you may suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). This condition is characterized by recurrent episodes of depression in certain months of the year alternating with periods of normal mood the rest of the year. Usually those affected by SAD become depressed in the fall and winter and feel better during the spring and summer. Atypical cases are also known in which the person becomes depressed during the summer. Most people with SAD are women whose illness typically begins in their twenties. Milder versions of SAD have been reported in children and adolescents. Many people with SAD report at least one close relative with a psychiatric condition, most frequently a severe depressive disorder (55 percent) or alcohol abuse (34 percent). What are the patterns of SAD?
    The usual characteristics of recurrent winter depression include oversleeping, carbohydrate craving, and weight gain. Other symptoms include the usual features of depression, especially decreased sexual appetite, lethargy, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, lack of interest in normal activities, and social withdrawal. Recurrent summer depression is more likely to be characterized by insomnia, decreased appetite, weight loss, and agitation or anxiety. Patients with SAD in the summer often have histories of summer trips to the north, where they find relief from depression in cold climates. Generally, normal air conditioning is not sufficient to relieve depression in these patients during the summer months.
