Helping a friend who's depressed

"Don't say, "There's no reason for you to be depressed," " says T. Byram Karasu, MD, chair of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. " Just be there. It's tempting to try to talk a loved one out of his or her feelings of sadness and despair, but it's more important to show your support. Just being present sends the message that you care. " Be alert to worsening symptoms. "If the depressed person is sleeping longer or continues to lose weight for more than three weeks, he or she may need to be hospitalized," says Dr. Karasu. Watch for self-destructive behaviors, such as drinking too much alcohol or accumulating a large number of tranquilizers or other drugs that could be used in a suicide attempt. "Don't be afraid to ask a person if he or she is considering suicide," he adds.

"I find this very surprising," T. Byram Karasu, MD, who was not involved in the review, told Medscape Medical News. "It's bizarre, actually, because it has been shown that exercise for depression does improve quality of life."

Dr. Karasu is professor and chair of psychiatry and behavior sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and is psychiatrist-in-chief at the Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. He said it is important to distinguish "curative and useful activities."

Dr. Karasu also cautioned that exercise itself "wouldn't be expected to relieve depression unless it is done at a level to generate endorphins, which means running at a speed of 6.5 to 6.7 miles per hour for at least 10 minutes."
"I seriously doubt most depressed patients can do this; some can't even get out of bed. Even the average nondepressed person cannot run at this level to generate endorphins. But for depressive mood, any exercise will help bring you out of a gloomy state; social activities will also help," Dr. Karasu said.
The study was supported by the National Institute for Health Research. The authors report no relevant financial relationships. Dr. Karasu chaired the American Psychiatric Association work group on major depressive disorders, whose findings were published in Practice Guideline for Major Depressive Disorder in Adults (First Edition). Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2013;9:CD004366.

"To me, grief is a normal condition, not to be tagged with a diagnostic code and to be treated," stressed Dr. T. Byram Karasu, chairman of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and psychiatrist-in-chief at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. "Everyone loses someone in their lives at some point. So, this would be classifying everyone at some point. No one would be immune to this."

"And that does not make sense, because grief is a normal and very healthy behavior," said Karasu, who also chairs the APA's National Task Force on the treatment of depression.
