Major depressive disorder (MDD) is commonly referred to as just depression, though it should not be confused with other types. MDD is defined by the presence of recurrent depressive episodes that last longer than two weeks at a time. The time between episodes can be short or long (up to years). Some people with MDD continue to experience one or more symptoms during the time between episodes while others feel relatively normal. If negative symptoms persist (episodes and between-episode symptoms included) for two years or more then the condition is referred to as dysthymia or persistent depressive disorder.
