Mixed episode?



Nov 1, 2018
I'm just reaching out to everybody. I'm also curious if anybody's ever had depression and anxiety the same time? I'm wondering if it's a mixed episode. I feel all this anxiety and depression at the same time. It's really hard to describe. I'm not angry or anything I feel kind of depressed having trouble sleeping and eating. Has anyone had a mixed episode or agitated depression or anything like that? Thank you

Hi AM. I suppose you could call a state of depression with anxiety a mixed state but usually it refers to a state of depressed exhaustion mixed with mania; a very uncomfortable state.

Mixed episodes for me are depression and energy with manifests as extreme irritability.


having anxiety with depression is common, as others have said a mixed episode is feeling high and low at the same time
