Insomnia and excessive sleepiness in teen depression

As the name suggests, teen depression is depression that occurs in the adolescents or teenagers.

In fact, many depressed teens experience excessive sleepiness (hypersomnia) or insomnia (lack of sleep problem, about almost 70 percent of depressed teens may don’t have adequate sleep at night) — or alternating insomnia and hypersomnia, according to the National Sleep Foundation.

Moreover, depressed teens who suffer from both sleep disorders are also likely to get a long-lasting, severe depression. They’re also at high risk of anhedonia (lack of ability to feel pleasure) and weight changes (see also the link between depression and weight loss).

Living with depression is not easy. If you have any symptoms of this mood disorder, see your doctor promptly for appropriate treatment and more advice!
