Anxious Depression

Anxious depression is an unofficial label for conditions in which both anxiety and depression are present. Oftentimes, people with depression will experience some symptoms that are similar to those of an anxiety disorder, such as nervousness, irritability, problems sleeping, and problems concentrating. Although presently these two conditions are classified separately by the DSM-5, they are frequently co-morbid (occurring at the same time). At present, no consistent criteria has yet been established in order to accurately define anxious depression as a distinct disease state.
