Arthritis Drug Celebrex May Help Treat Depression



Researchers have found that the arthritis drug, often marketed as Celebrex, can help make anti-depression medication more effective. According to the study presented at the Fifth International Congress on Psychiatry and the Neurosciences in Athens, Greece, scientists say that pairing Celebrex with other drugs resulted in faster and more dramatic drops in depression scores in patients with bipolar disorder. The study’s authors say the results suggest that the arthritis drug should be considered as an anti-depression treatment. Researchers also say that this combination helped patients recover faster. Usually anti-depressants could take 4-6 weeks to take effect. But with the new drug combination, patients reported seeing benefits to their treatment within the first week.
