Depression has three stages, low, moderate, and severe.
Before a person reaches to the severe level and then seek help, there are cases where people are able to identify their depression on the lower stages and look for help.
The most common depressant in the UK, that most of the GPs prescribe to their patient who is at a mild or moderate level called sertraline hardly works, a study says.
A study carried out by University College London’s scientists shows how the pills barely work on depression and shocked the scientists.
The scientists had changed sertraline drug with a dummy drug and expected to have optimized results.
They expected the drug to affect a patient in ways like lack of concentration, low quality sleep, etc. But to their shock, there was hardly any difference.
They found out that the drug was not working much on the factors mentioned above, however, it had a good effect on the anxiety a patient feels.
The drug helped a patient in getting rid of restlessness, irritability, etc as it worked on ever all mental health.
The study found out that the two times of the number of patients reported feeling better in comparison to the patients who were on placebo.
Researcher Professor Glyn Lewis, the head of the department of psychiatry at the University College London says, “when we found out the result of the study, we were left in a shock. We had not expected such a result and made all the difference.”
He said that the drug he tested on works in a very different way he thought that it did and it came out as a serious shock to him.
He said that it looks like the drug work on anxiety first rather than curing other symptoms first. This is probably better because anxiety is the major reason people take longer than they need to get out of depression.
