Mood Disorders Can Affect Your Relationships

Mood disorders are also known as affective disorders, and they are illnesses that cause an individual to experience moods that are unusual for particular circumstances. Some of the typical mood disorders include seasonal affective disorder, bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, schizoaffective disorder, and cyclothymia. Most of these mood disorders can be effectively treated with psychotherapy and modern drugs.

The third type of mood disorder is called the substance-induced mood disorder. It is initiated as a physiological effect of dangerous drugs or chemical substances that are taken by an individual. Most of the time, the substance-induced mood disorder occurs right after substance intoxication. The typical features of substance-induced mood disorder include hippomanic episodes, depressive episodes, and manic episodes. Methamphetamine, amphetamine, and cocaine are some of the substances that can cause such episodes.


Alcohol-Induced Mood Disorder is a sub-category of substance-induced mood disorders, and it affects heavy drinkers or alcoholics. Recent research has shown that excessive dependence on alcohol and alcohol misuse can often lead to depression as well as depression-induced suicides. In alcohol depression, distortion in the chemistry of the brain is brought about by alcohol. Alcohol-induced mood disorder can be cured if the affected person abstains from alcohol for a long period of time.

Benzodiazepine-Induced Mood Disorder is another type of substance-induced mood disorder, and it is caused by the prolonged use of benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines are a type of medication that is used to treat ailments such as muscular spasms, insomnia, and anxiety. The use of benzodiazepines can also lead to major depressive disorder and withdrawal syndrome.
