Long-term effects of antidepressants

A study with the participation of millions of people has concluded that antidepressants do not improve the long-term quality of life of patients. Dr Vieta, head of the Clínic's Psychiatry Unit, explains that this conclusion is not reliable due to methodological errors.

Antidepressant medication can be improved and should ideally be combined with psychotherapy. Current treatments, however, help millions of people.
