GPs should not prescribe antidepressants routinely for long periods, or to treat mild depression, NICE [National Institute for Clinical Excellence] has warned.

BMJ research reveals an increase in long-term antidepressant use across the UK

Updated guidance published this week says GPs should only consider the drugs for patients with moderate or severe depression, or those suffering sub-threshold depressive symptoms for at least two years.

The latest guidance comes as research in the BMJ reveals an increase in long-term antidepressant use across the UK.

The researchers assessed all cases of depression from 1993 to 2005 across 170 surgeries, covering 1.7 million patients.

They found that prescriptions per patient rose from 2.8 in 1993 to 5.6 in 2004, despite a drop in the number of patients diagnosed with depression.

The researchers said the rise may be due to more patients taking antidepressants on a long-term basis.

    My 67 year old husband was prescribed 60 ml of celexa daily and clonazapam and began to have uncontrollable muscle spasms and tightness when he tried to go to sleep at night. He groans and makes weird noises and it takes hours to fall asleep. The doctor took him off completely and prescribed trazedone, Still he could not sleep. Thent he doctor prescribed wellbutrin and temazepam and he is he only sleeping a couple hours but has just as much difficulty falling asleep. Help…he wants to die now, mood is getting worse than ever. losing all hope he will ever be able to sleep. roxanne

Isn't it amazing that Hippocrates is suppose to be the father of medicine and look at the mess we have made of it sense then! It is long past time to go back to his simple advice!
