> Dual Medications For Depression Increases Costs, Side Effects With No Benefit To Patients

Hmm, I remember a study published in Biological Psychiatry not too long ago that said exactly the opposite. I think it was bupropion + mirtazapine that was used, and remission rates were almost double compared to either of those two alone. If I were a psychiatrist, I wouldn't start right out on a patient with two drugs I think, but I still hear people occasionally say that polypharmacy is a no-no in depression treatment, and I certainly disagree with that.
