Dear Mr Fiddaman,

Thank you for your email of 26 February to the Department of Health about a recently published study on antidepressants. New guidance on the treatment of depression will be issued by National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence later in the year, and this new study will be considered as the guidance is prepared. Until then, the message to patients and doctors remains the same - antidepressants are an appropriate treatment for moderate or severe depression.

The Department is, however, expanding the availability of psychological therapies as an alternative to drugs with extra investment and plans to train an extra 3,600 psychological therapists. The evidence shows that these therapies are effective and often preferred by patients.

I hope this reply is helpful.

Yours sincerely,
Edward Corbett

I hope this reply is helpful?

Yup, about as helpful as sending me a man with no arms to groom my dog!

So, what is the benefit of Seroxat? I may go and ask the brick wall at the foot of my garden!
