Psychotic Depression: Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment



Psychotic depression occurs when an individual with severe depression experiences psychotic symptoms, such as delusions and hallucinations, or experiences depressive stupor, where the individual is so slowed down with psychomotor retardation such that they are almost entirely unresponsive. I use ICD-10 to outline the diagnosis, and talk about the symptoms and treatment using other texts as well.
