John Moody - Recurrent Depression with overvalued ideas You are a 60 year old man with a history of intermittent depression over the past 15 years, and worried that the symptoms are returning. You saw another GP two weeks earlier and declined any treatment. You filled in the questionnaire given and brought it in today. You scored 17 but you unsure of the significance.

This time there is no specific trigger for your low mood, disrupted sleep (difficulty getting to sleep) and reduced appetite. Previous episodes were more severe and due to work and the stress with running your own business, and in conjunction been through a divorce. Now you are in a happy relationship but unduly worried that you are going to ruin things. She is blissfully unaware. You have made some of your own changes by reducing your work to part-time, and your son is taking over the business. You have stopped smoking in the last year and you drink within 10-20 units per week. No financial concerns.

You have tried medication in the past (Prosac), and reluctant to try again. You are concerned about your girlfriend knowing you are taking them, the stigma of depression. They helped in the past but you are more worried about side effects and what you read in the papers. Your sister is into herbal medicines and suggested St Johns Wort, which you think sounds great. It is herbal and according to what you have read - it works. You are not particularly aware of alternatives medications. You have tried counselling but not cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Counselling was not a great experience as you didnt particularly like the counsellor. However, you are willing to try again. Your past medical history includes: recurrent depression and hypertension, and you only take ramipril. You are expecting reassurance particularly as no triggers, and to reassurance that you have come early. You are very keen for St Johns Wort but willing to consider explanation of St Johns Wort and other medications. You are very keen to hear about alternate ways so CBT, exercise, and sleep hygiene etc.
