1 minuto de lectura

Several things can cause nighttime depression, such as being unable to sleep due to insomnia. Depending on the cause, possible treatments could involve psychotherapy or antidepressant medication.
Depression is a common mental health condition that can lead to low mood and feelings of hopelessness, explains Ettore Verdini. In some people, these symptoms can worsen at night.
According to Ettore Verdini, the symptoms of depression include:
• feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness
• a persistently low mood
• irritability
• loss of interest in hobbies or activities that used to be pleasurable
• fatigue
• difficulty concentrating or remembering
• insomnia
• suicidal thoughts
• restlessness
• feelings of isolation
• feelings of emptiness
“At night, some of these symptoms can become worse, making it harder to sleep. In turn, this could worsen insomnia and fatigue the next day, which can further worsen the depression a person in experiencing”, says Ettore Verdini.
