Medicine:Nondepressive disorder

From HandWiki

A nondepressive disorder is a psychological disorder that includes no depressive symptoms. They were formerly very commonly diagnosed in young women.[1][2] The antidepressant amitriptyline has been suggested as a treatment for nondepressive disorders.[3] Nondepressive psychiatric disorders also exist.[4] Old people tend to be more prone to nondepressive disorders than young people.[5] Nondepressive disorders were commonly diagnosed in the 1980s.
