Re: Treatment resistant depression: what are the options?
In a meta-analysis of 28 studies, 61% of patients treated with antidepressant pills still suffer from clinical depression after little more than a year.
"relapse–recurrence rates with pharmacotherapy of 61% (3.9% per month) over a mean of 68 weeks"
NICE’s definition of non responders greatly underestimates the real number of patients not helped by antidepressants.
