Antidepressants increase among young in SwedenFriday, 13 July 2012
Stress, boredom and uncertainty in their futures means that more and
more young people in Sweden are being increased anti depressants.
Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) reports
an increase of the consumption of anti depressant drugs by 36 percent
since 2006, reported Swedish television.
The use of antidepressants is greatest in the age groups 20 and 24
years. More women already take the drugs than men today, but the use
among young men is increasing most rapidly.
The increase is because psychiatric care is reported to be better at
spotting people with difficulties rather that that the drugs are being
given out easily according to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in
Stockholm, Swedish television says.
