5 Description Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is defined as a history of major depressive episodes that recur regularly at a particular time of the year, typically winter. SAD is associated with decreases in ambient light exposure during the winter season. Women make up the majority of cases, but men and children also suffer from this condition. Commercial light boxes are now available for treatment of SAD and other depressive disorders. Light therapy consists of daily half-hour to two-hour sessions with the individual sitting in front of the light box, which is equipped with high-intensity florescent lights. The individual can read, study, eat, or perform other daily activities while the sessions are in progress. Currently, no phototherapy device has final market approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of SAD or other depressive disorders. While light boxes or light visors cannot be marketed directly for the treatment for SAD or promoted for other health benefits, these devices are commercially available. All phototherapy devices for the treatment of SAD are considered investigational regardless of the commercial name, the manufacturer or FDA approval status except as noted in the policy statement. Summary In a meta-analysis of commercial light boxes for SAD, the authors conclude that the effects are comparable to those reported in many antidepressant pharmacotherapy trials. The authors point out that, compared to pharmacologic therapies; there has been minimal funding for light therapy, leading to various different definitions of bright light and different protocol used. In addition, it has been very difficult to devise an adequate placebo that is either not detected by the patient or does not have an effect of its own. By carefully selecting randomized trials based both on study design, predetermined criteria defining bright light, and a credible placebo, the results of this meta- analysis suggest that bright light is associated with a treatment benefit in patients with seasonal affective disorder, and that this treatment may be medically necessary for SAD.
