Perhaps the most explosive health story of the year so far is the far-reaching study into the efficacy of the innumerable anti-depressant medicines currently available for prescription in the UK. Unveiled in the Lancet on 21st February and widely reported in the papers, it’s exposed some of the most widely prescribed anti-depressants as barely effective at all, while some of the less prescribed ones are the most effective. If nothing else, at last people in need can try to access the drugs that are most likely to help them with what is one of the most common and most debilitating mental illnesses known to man – depression. The good news is that, like gay massage, anti-depressants do work. The study confirms that beyond all doubt. It involved well over 100,000 people and it demonstrated that all 21 of the anti-depressants in the study do work. But what it also revealed is that there are vast differences in how well they work.

Just turn to Gay Massage

Roughly 65 million anti-depressant prescriptions are written in England alone each year. That’s double the figure of ten years ago. There always lingered the suspicion that some of the drugs might be no better than placebos (aka dummy pills). Now, though, the Royal College of Psychiatrists can state beyond all doubt that they are effective after all. The extremely helpful findings in the study reveal that the most effective are: agomelatine, amitriptyline, escitalopram, mirtazapine and paroxetine. These are the ones to ask for if you’re in discussions with your GP about help for your depression. The least effective are: fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, ruboxetine and trazodone. Doctors insist that this doesn’t mean affected parties should immediately be switched to the most effective ones. The study looked at the average effects of each medication, rather than how each substance worked depending on different genders, ages, symptoms and other variables. Also, the research looked at treatment over the period of eight weeks, so the study can’t be taken as an indication of longer-term effects. Still, we now know once and for all that anti-depressants do work. Combined with gay massage London, they’re an effective and helpful way to combat depression.
