Aspirin and ibuprofen are more effective than antidepressants.

As we enter the period of seasonal depression related to winter, researchers at the University of Wuan in China have just published a study on depression. Their work was based on 30 studies involving 1,610 patients and published in the Journal of Neurology.

According to Chinese scientists, certain painkillers have beneficial effects on the treatment of depression. They can even be 2.5 times more effective than antidepressants. These include aspirin and ibuprofen, among others, which are very common and sold without prescription in pharmacies in the US. Statins, omega-3 fatty acids and corticosteroids also showed anti depression properties and must be looked into further.

Over 300 million people suffer from depression

“Our systematic review and meta-analysis suggest that anti-inflammatories have an antidepressant effect on the treatment of depression and are generally safe with placebo-like rates of adverse events. However, due to the chronic course of the disease, quality of life and adverse events should be studied in depth in high-quality randomized clinical trials with long-term follow-up,” says a member of the study.

This is an important finding, especially since one in ten patients is not treated with antidepressants. As a reminder, according to the WHO, more than 300 million people suffer from depression. A rising disease that is the leading cause of morbidity and disability in the world.
