Painkillers Help Depression?

Now here's an interesting thing, it seems that taking two painkillers a day can reduce the symptoms of depression, a study has suggested. The findings have prompted calls for trials on whether over-the-counter pills could be prescribed for mental health disorders.

Scientists reviewed 26 previous studies to look at the effect of anti-inflammatory drugs, including ibuprofen and aspirin, on the symptoms of “major depressive disorder”. These include low moods and the inability to feel pleasure.

Researchers from the University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China, found that the drugs were 79 per cent more effective at eliminating symptoms and 52 per cent more effective at reducing their overall severity than a placebo.

The problem, I suspect, will come when Nanny will decide that because those with depression may need a prescription to obtain painkillers (that are currently sold "over the counter") then all painkillers will be subjected to an "only by prescription" order irrespective of the reason for needing the painkiller.

Or am I being just a tad too cynical?
