Eliazabeth, Thanks for that. It clarifies things somewhat. I surmise than that melancholic depression is considered typical &/or "simple mood-reactive depression."

In the first line of the following do you have any idea what lab. findings are referred to?

>Certain laboratory findings are more common in patients with melancholic depression than in those with nonmelancholic depression. Melancholic depression is equally common among men and women and more common in older people than in younger people.
> A third cateogory that is sometimes used is "simple mood-reactive depression. This is just mood-reactive depression without atypical features. I think it's probably the most common kind, and also the least understood.
