Doctors overprescribing anti-depressants for elderly patients

By  | 

New research from the Mayo Clinic suggests doctors may be overprescribing anti-depressants for elderly patients.
The study looked at older adults living in Minnesota.
It showed that about 25-percent were taking more anti-depressants than they probably needed.
This was most likely to happen among people in living nursing homes and those with more health problems.
