Prozac does not work in majority of depressed patients

New research finds that that there is little reason to prescribe SSRI medications to any but the most severely depressed patients. It also shows that the people who did respond to the drugs would have responded to placebo, anyway. It confirms that doctors should not be dishing these drugs out as first-line treatment for mild depression. These findings further support the use of complementary therapies such as hypnosis and psychotherapy.
