Families Should Actively Monitor Antidepressant Treatment
Families for Depression Awareness is pleased that last week the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has made a clear statement that families, patients, and clinicians should more closely monitor the effects of antidepressants in the treatment of depression. It is important to emphasize that the FDA has not warned against the use of antidepressants, only the inadequate monitoring of their use.
