Meds don’t always work

For every 100 people you see over the age of 12, at least 10 of them are taking medication for depression, according to the National Institutes of Health. And about one-third of those on medication don’t find relief from their depression symptoms, according to Scott T. Aaronson, the director of clinical research programs for Sheppard Pratt Health System and lead author of a recent major study on people with chronic, treatment-resistant depression.Of those who do find relief initially (also known as “remission”), another third will experience “tolerance,” which might be better known by its less technical term, “poop-out,” according to Shanthi Mogali, a double board-certified physician in General and Addiction Psychiatry and director of psychiatry at Mountainside Treatment Center with a specialty in treating patients with depression.Luckily there are a lot of options, and more in the pipeline all the time. In the meantime, it’s important to understand what’s really going on.
