9780801884511: Depression, the Mood Disease (A Johns Hopkins Press Health Book)

Depression is a mood disorder that affects one in ten Americans in any given year. At one time too stigmatized to be mentioned in polite conversation, depression is now discussed frankly in the media, and advertisements for drug therapy appear everywhere. The third edition of this widely acclaimed book reflects changes in how mood disorders are thought about, and how they are treated.

Dr. Francis Mark Mondimore, author of the best-selling book Bipolar Disorder: A Guide for Patients and Families, here explains depression―its causes and symptoms, and its treatment. He discusses depression in all age groups and in both sexes, as well as bipolar disorder, seasonal affective disorders, and depression that accompanies illness. This edition encompasses more than a decade of new research, advances in pharmacology, and changes in public perception.

The past ten years have seen the release of new forms of the major antidepressants as well as other promising new avenues in pharmaceutical treatments. For example "atypical" or "second generation" antidepressants, such as venlafaxine and duloxetine, provide different ways of manipulating the chemical systems in the brain concerned with mood. And there have been significant advances in the use of MAO inhibitors, now available in patch form.

Dr. Mondimore reviews these and other pharmacological therapies as part of a comprehensive approach to treatment that includes psychotherapy, family and community support, and lifestyle changes. Full of information compassionately presented, this guide provides hope and help to patients and their families.

About the Author:

Francis Mark Mondimore, M.D., is a psychiatrist and member of the faculty of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His books include Bipolar Disorder: A Guide for Patients and Families and Adolescent Depression: A Guide for Parents, both published by Johns Hopkins.

From Library Journal:

In the style of Demitri and Janice Papolos's Overcoming Depression (Harper, 1987) but less detailed, this book presents a "consumer's guide" to mood or affective disorders. Mondimore discusses symptoms, proper diagnosis, treatment, causes, and advice to families along with the connection between mood disorders and seasonal affective disorder, premenstrual syndrome, panic disorders, and anorexia. But he omits mentioning the relationship between depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The book succeeds best as a readable, informative, comforting overview of a common illness frightening to most people. Its conciseness, however, can be dangerous; it offers no detailed list of foods incompatible with the MAO inhibitors used to treat depression, too few case studies, and little about psychotherapy. Recommended only as a supplement to the Papolos's book or similar titles.
