    Article - En anglais

    Between 1990 and 1993, a series of drug utilization observation studies with fluoxetine (Flx) were conducted in Germany in several waves. 3,158 patients treated by psychiatrists/neurologists (PN) and 15,601 patients treated by general practitioners/internists (GPI) were included ; data collection at start and end of treatment focussed on diagnoses, symptoms, prescription, comedication, efficacy (CGI, Zung scale), and adverse events.

Psychotropic comedication was regarded as necessary in 39% (PN) and 10% (GPI) of the cases.

    Early treatment termination because of « remission/major improvement » was observed in 13% (PN) vs. 21% (GPI) and because of « adverse events » in 11% (PN) vs. 3% (GPI) of the patients.

    At observation end, 53% (PN) vs. 74% (GPI) were rated as « symptom-freelmarkedly improved » (CGI) ; self-ratings reflected comparable results, marked improvements over time, but still PN/GPI differences at the end. « Suicidality » related to depression was more pronounced in the PN group at both points in time. 24% (PN) vs. (...)
