Suggestive Affect Could Influence on The Depression Treatment
The results of a study published the journal of Clinical Psychiatry, that can not be assumed that antidepressants have lost their effectiveness if there have been a setback to the patient during the continuation of treatment because the treatment may not have been effective in the first place.
The results of this study indicate that the majority of patients who had setbacks were not real responsive to treatment.
Some patients responded to suffer from depressive disorder, similar to other medical disorders for Suggestive treatment and medical practice with respect to each person is given an active drug, so it was not clear whether the patient had improved due to respond to the drug or because of the effects of "non-specific", such as the impact of Suggestive.
Suggestive affect is a kind of response "force to Suggestive" where in which the patient begins to feel an improvement because of its belief that receiving treatment "does not know he was receiving treatment and placebo." These are usually short-term responses.
In the same vein, the setbacks that occur during the continuation of treatment may be due to the loss of the response of a real or may be due to the end of suggestive initial response.
The study included 750 patients. This was a continuation of studies on antidepressants from the new generation.
Using two different methods for the estimation of setback, the researchers found that the majority of relapses occurred because the patients were not responding to real drugs.
