Healio (12/17, Salvaryn) reported, “Psychotherapy may work better than medication in reducing the level of long-term depressive symptoms,” investigators concluded “in a follow-up of three randomized controlled trials” of 298 “patients treated for major depression,” looking “at outcomes at five years to determine whether the patient’s original treatment influenced the course of illness and whether baseline features or clinical characteristics influenced long-term outcomes of the depression.” The findings were published online ahead of print in the January issue of the Journal of Psychiatric Research.
