Chronic depression: Now, a treatable condition

Robert H. Howland, Richard C. Shelton, Madhukar H. Trivedi

Abstract

Once thought to reflect an "unhappy temperament," chronic depression is now known to be a mood disorder amenable to drug treatment. The therapeutic implications are profound - particularly because many of these patients have been depressed for decades, if not for their entire adult lives.
