Antidepressants Not Always Effective For People With Chronic Diseases

Recommended Posts



"Afterward, the antidepressant group showed no improvement in symptoms compared with the placebo group, based on questionnaires."

In other words this is the finding when one is honest and don't  have  data dredging experts on the team.  


"Researchers speculated that depression along with a chronic condition may be clinically different from traditional depression, and thus not respond to medications like sertraline."

None of the published articles shed light on what ssri's such as Zoloft actually do or what their hazards might be. Healy 2013

How about this... disappointment or should one want to call it another 'd' word when combined with a chronic condition might actually be called normality!! There is no need to medicalize normality.



"They added that more research is needed to investigate whether depression in the setting of a chronic condition requires specialized treatment, such as other types of antidepressants, cognitive behavioral therapy or other talk therapies, or some combination."

In other words we gonna go back to the drawing board pay for some data dredgers on the team we gonna make sure we tell many about how people with chronic conditions should or shouldn't feel and we gonna play around with the placebo cohort maybe change the statistical significance bar and then we gonna try to hit this group of citizens again with the drug drag net.
