2. Are You Self-Medicating Your Depression With Alcohol?
While you are taking a depression test, consider taking this test as well if you drink alcoholic beverages and are concerned that your use is problematic. Dual diagnosis (drug or alcohol abuse comorbid with a psychiatric disorder) is common. Approximately 50 percent of patients with a substance abuse disorder will have at least one psychiatric disorder, most commonly a mood or anxiety disorder. Although it has not been validated experimentally, it has been hypothesized that patients use drugs and alcohol in an attempt to self-medicate psychiatric symptoms.
3. Do You Have an Anxiety Disorder?
Although depression and anxiety are separate disorders, they often go hand-in-hand. For example, it is estimated that 50 percent of people with panic disorder will develop depression at some point. Major depression and dysthymia are frequently seen in patients with GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). These quizzes can familiarize you with the symptoms of anxiety disorders as well as other basic information.
