A U.S. study of 2,876 men and women with a diagnosis of major depression has found intriguing differences in the way in which men and women respond to the antidepressant citalopram. Researchers from the University of Michigan Depression Center [sic] looked into people taking citalopram over a number of weeks with the doses increasing over time. All of the patients had been experiencing depression for years; on average 12 years. Women were 33% more likely to achieve a full remission of their depression, despite the fact that they were more severely depressed than the men when the study began.
