Adding atypical antipsychotic improves depression scores by 45%, says NHS analysis


Augmentation therapy is well recognised in psychiatry for resistant depression usually started on patients who have had failure with >3 different antidepressant classes and counselling. Risperidone is the cheapest with studies but most new studies are with Olanzipine. Nothing new here. Interestingly atypical antipsychotics also have been found to be useful in chronic pain! That would be useful to pain clinics
