Efficacy Study

Patient_Presentaiton_20

The STAR*D Study is the largest trial ever done on psychotropic medications. Over seven years, the remission rates of more than 4,000 patients on medications were studied.

The results found that:

  • First-line treatment (1st medication) produced a 27.5% chance of remission
  • Second-line treatment (2nd medication) produced a 21.2% chance of remission
  • Third-line treatment (3rd medication) produced a 16.2% chance of remission.
  • If participants failed on three medications, the fourth medicine produced a 6.9% chance of remission.

If a doctor handed you a prescription and told you that because you're on your fourth medication, it has only a 7% chance of working, wouldn't you ask if there was another option?
