Our expert says:
Dysthymia is a form of depression, not as severe as Major Depressive Disorder, but longer lasting and it may b hader to treat. The diagnosis should only be made by a proper specialist psychiatris or psychologist after a proper assessment, and this would of course include a discussion of treatment options. I would prefer to try CBT in this disorder, as response to Antidepressant drugs may be less efective than with ordinary depression. If severe anger is the major problem, CBT and oher therapies aimed at anger control should be the main approach
