Depressão e Apneia do Sono AnimaVita Brasília

Em pacientes com depressão um dos distúrbios associados que devem ser investigados, quando houver indicação é a Apneia do Sono. Frequentemente estes dois problemas ocorrem juntos

 

Apneia do sono e depressão:



 

Pessoas com apnéia do sono são mais propensas à depressão clínica por causa do forte impacto que a doença pode ter sobre suas vidas.

O desânimo, letargia e o sentimento de depressão podem ser o resultado da privação do sono, mesmo que você não saiba que tem apneia de sono

Então, quando o paciente melhora o padrão de sono, muitos dos sintomas podem desaparecer juntamente com o aumento do risco de doenças cardiovasculares, acidentes automobilísticos e inclusive derrames.

 

Os sintomas da depressão clínica associada a Apneia do Sono:



- Pessimismo

- Fadiga

- Sensação de diminuição da energia

- Perda de interesse no trabalho e atividades da vida cotidiana


- Nervosismo e irritabilidade

 

- Mau funcionamento sexual

- Baixa auto-estima

 

 

Além da depressão, muitas outras doenças atribuidas primariamente como psiquiatricas são na realidade pelo menos exacerbadas ou até mesmo causadas por episódios de apneia, pervertendo a arquitetura de sono e por conseguinte a saúde mental.
