Personalized Antidepressant Therapy

Is inflammation affecting your response to antidepressants? 1 in 5 Americans use at least one psychiatric drug per day. London researchers have developed a novel blood test using macrophage migration inhibitory factor and interleukin-1beta as the bio-markers. High levels of these cytokines may necessitate more aggressive medication including antidepressants and anti-inflammatory drugs to treat depression.

Additional randomized clinical studies are needed before this option is available to patients via their conventional health practitioner. In the interim, perhaps adding an anti-inflammatory diet and gut healing protocol to your current treatment could brighten your mood.
