MDD affects approximately 14.2 million American adults in a given year and today it is often treated with antidepressants.(4) Unlike normal instances of sadness, loss, or passing mood states, MDD is persistent and can interfere with an individual's thoughts, behavior, mood, activity, and physical health. Depression is one of the leading causes of disability in the US.(7)
