  1. Patterns of antidepressant use in community practice.

    Article - En anglais

    Computerized pharmacy records from a large staff-model health maintenance organization were used to examine patterns of antidepressant use by primary care physicians and psychiatrists.

    Based on timing of prescription refills, patients treated by psychiatrists were more likely than those treated in primary care to continue medication for more than 30 days (35% vs 25% p<0.00001) and more likely to reach a prescribed daily dose of 100 mg of imipramine or the equivalent (48% vs 40%, p<0.00001).
