New Guidelines for Depression Treatment

By Adem Lewis / in , , , , /

Patients with major depressive disorder (MDD)
are often prescribed one of two treatments: antidepressants or therapy. But which one
works best? I’m Shelby Cullinan with your latest health news . Both, according to new guidelines on depression
treatment from the American College of Physicians. Both methods appeared to be similarly effective
in a recent review of existing studies — the findings of which informed the guidelines.
The gist of the new guidelines? Because antidepressant drugs and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
appeared equally effective, doctors should assess individual patients to determine what
approach would work best in their case. MDD isn’t just sadness when something bad happens
— it’s severe and constant enough to affect a patient’s daily life. If you have MDD, speak
to your doctor about the best treatment option for your condition.
