DEPRESSED PATIENTS WHO COMPLAIN OF PHYSICAL RATHER THAN PSYCHOLOGICAL SYMPTOMS REQUIRE DIFFERENT TREATMENT APPROACH, STUDY FINDS
A primary care depression intervention is more effective for patients with predominantly psychological versus physical symptoms, according to this group-randomized trial involving 200 patients. A two-year ongoing intervention for patients who complained of psychological symptoms improved clinical outcomes while reducing outpatient costs by $980 per patient. In contrast, a two-year ongoing intervention for patients who complained exclusively of physical symptoms failed to improve clinical outcomes beyond usual care, while increasing outpatient costs by $1,378 per patient over two years. The findings suggest a need for developing new intervention approaches for depressed patients who complain of physical symptoms.

STUDY EXAMINES WHY SOME PATIENTS DON'T TAKE THEIR ANTIDEPRESSANT MEDICATIONS
Patients' adherence to maintenance antidepressant therapy varies widely and can be explained by their beliefs about the medications prescribed. In a survey of 81 patients, researchers found that adherence was highest among patients whose perceived need for the medication exceeded their concerns about taking it, and it was lowest for those whose concerns about taking the medication exceeded their perceived need.
