Downgrading from PhD to masters

hello people,

hope to get some advise on this matter.

I am well into the 23rd month of my PhD program, and i had recently passed my qualifying examination at the 20th month. However, I have lost interest in my PhD (Depressed) and am intending to tell my prof soon about quitting.

Is there a possibility of getting a masters? Should this be a possible option, am i required to 'extend' my stay in the lab to maybe officially write a master thesis or is the qualifying examination report (mini thesis- with literature works, abstract, results discussion) and oral presentation i gave is sufficient?

If downgrading to a masters degree is possible, what would that depend on?
