Antidepressants work straightaway26th October 2009
Researchers at Oxford University have said that antidepressant medication works straightaway in order to improve how a patient feels.
The team, headed by Dr Catherine Harmer, looked at the effects of giving antidepressants or dummy medication to 33 depressed patients and 31 non-depressed subjects. Dr Harmer said: "We found the antidepressants target the negative thoughts before the patient is aware of any change in feeling subjectively. Over time, this will affect our mood and how we feel because we are receiving more positive information."
