BDI is the total Beck Depression Inventory II [16]. BDA stands for the anhedonic subscore of the BDI consisting of the sum of items 4 (loss of pleasure), 12 (loss of interest), 15 (loss of energy) and 21 (interest in sex). BDI\A is the total BDI score without the anhedonic component (BDI\A = BDI - BDA). Mood and Anxiety Symptom Questionnaire (MASQ) subscores [17] were anxious arousal (AA), anhedonic depression (AD), general distress anxiety (GDA) and generalised distress depression (GDD).
