Short term
In a clinical study, people who added deprexis® to their care plan saw a significant improvement in their depression symptoms.1
People who added deprexis® to their care plan were 12x more likely to see an improvement in symptoms compared with people who did not add deprexis® to their care plan.1*
*An improvement was defined as a 50% reduction in self-reported symptoms of depression between when deprexis® was started and at the end of the study.
Long term
In another clinical study, patients who added deprexis® to their care plan were still benefiting 6 months after therapy ended.10
