A substance induced mood disorder is a mental health condition impacting mood that stems from the physiological effects of substances, medications, toxins, or even heavy metals. If the substance or drug has a negative side effect, it may cause drug-induced depression or substance induced mania.
It is important to determine if a substance or medication is causing a substance induced disorder, especially if the medication is prescribed. Therefore, you should first consult your doctor or a medical professional if you believe you are experiencing medication-induced depression or other substance induced disorders.
