Abstract

A 26-year-old businesswoman seeks evaluation for a pattern of "hibernating away" each winter; this pattern began when she was in high school. Her current symptoms include excessive sleeping, a 20-lb (9-kg) weight gain related to an increased intake of sweets and excessive alcohol use, anhedonia, lack of motivation, negative ruminations, and decreased productivity at work. She reports a history of several-week periods in college when she had less need for sleep, with associated increases in mood, energy, and libido. During the last episode, she exceeded her credit-card limit and was evaluated at an emergency department for alcohol intoxication. How should she be evaluated and treated?
