NIMH study...antidepressants work only 30% of time

Posted by LostBoyinNCBecksDark on October 23, 2007, at 19:31:54

The STAR*D study done by NIMH discovered something I already knew for years...the present crop of antidepressants dont work well for most depressives. If you define "working well" as treating clinical depression to FULL REMISSION and not just a 50% improvement, most antidepressants fail in the majority of depressives who try them.

Only ECT or shock treatment, has a good reputation at treating clinical depression to full remission.

If you want to read about STAR*D, go to your nearest University library or nearest medical library. And pull archived copies of The American Journal of Psychiatry.
