Celexa (Citalopram)

Patients with major depression are alarmingly prone to suicide. Using many medicines, physicians have been able to lift the depression in up to 65 percent of these cases.
Kay Phillips, 49, of Birmingham, Alabama, teaches computer use to people with disabilities. After struggling for 5 years with many prescriptions, she says, she finally found Dr. Ed Logue in Birmingham. He was testing Organon, a new drug. Ms. Phillips recalls that other medications she had taken had interfered with her sleep so severely that she’d been unable to keep a job.
“I was tired for 5 years,” she says. “But when you find the right medication, it is incredible. My energy level was restored. No more anxiety.”
Eventually, Ms. Phillips no longer needed the medication. “I’m depression-free now,” she says. But she stays in close touch with Dr. Logue, who reports, “Things in Kay’s life are going well now, and she is off medication. Unfortunately, the drug did not work as well for most of the other patients in the study, so we discontinued it.” But, he added, he would prescribe another medication for Ms. Phillips if needed.
Years ago, patients with major depression had no treatment available except electroconvulsive therapy (ЕСТ). Because that therapy – which sends small electrical currents into the brain – used to be somewhat dangerous, people still fear it. But new techniques in the hands of well-trained scientists have removed the danger. In fact, despite what most people believe, ЕСТ is safer than most of the drugs now being prescribed. It even has an advantage over medicine: it acts rapidly, within days or weeks; drugs take longer, leaving the depressed patient vulnerable to suicide.
