Depression treatment: Psychotherapy and drug therapy

Posted on March 20th, 2012 No Comments

Depression affects thousands of Americans and the most common forms of treatment include psychotherapy and drug treatments.

A commonly prescribed type of medication is SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) antidepressants. These work to regulate chemicals so that the nerve cells can influence the way neurotransmitters function.

Although many Americans use drug therapy, many stop use while still being prescribed or they miss their doses. Medications can be difficult because certain types of antidepressants are effective for certain people.

It is estimated that individual antidepressants are effective for nearly 50 or 60 percent of patients. A new study shows that computer-based training on cognitive functions may be beneficial for depression treatment.

The use of antidepressants has also be controversial because if used during pregnancy, it has been linked to a higher risk of birth defect. Contact the Zoloft lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810 if this has happened to you.
