ICD-11 Criteria for Prominent Anxiety Symptoms in Mood Episodes

Foundation URI : http://id.who.int/icd/entity/1119039346

Prominent Anxiety Symptoms in Mood Episodes

6A80.0

Description

In the context of a current depressive, manic, mixed, or hypomanic episode, prominent and clinically significant anxiety symptoms (e.g., feeling nervous, anxious or on edge, not being able to control worrying thoughts, fear that something awful will happen, having trouble relaxing, motor tension, autonomic symptoms) have been present for most of the time during the episode. If there have been panic attacks during a current depressive or mixed episode, these should be recorded separately. When the diagnostic requirements for both a mood disorder and an anxiety or fear-related disorder are met, the anxiety or fear-related disorder should also be diagnosed.

Diagnostic Requirements

This specifier can be applied if, in the context of a current Depressive, Manic, Mixed, or Hypomanic Episode, prominent and clinically significant anxiety symptoms (e.g., feeling nervous, anxious or on edge, not being able to control worrying thoughts, fear that something awful will happen, having trouble relaxing, muscle tension, autonomic symptoms) have been present for most of the time during the episode. If there have been panic attacks during the current Depressive or Mixed Episode, these should be recorded separately (see ‘with panic attacks’ specifier). This specifier may be used whether or not the diagnostic requirements for an Anxiety or Fear-Related Disorder are also met, in which case the Anxiety or Fear-Related Disorder should also be diagnosed.
