Most individuals with depression and OCD do not respond to their first antidepressant treatment; it often takes several attempts before finding one that works.
This lack of precision means that individuals endure prolonged ineffective treatment and side effects before getting any relief.
With your help, we aim to develop a tool that will allow doctors to match the right antidepressant with the right person - helping people get better, faster.
It is an internet-based study so you can complete participation from your own home.
We are looking for:
- be about to start taking an antidepressant for the treatment of a mental health problem
- be able to upload a photo of the prescription for the antidepressant (you may obscure your name for the purposes of anonymity if you wish)
- not be currently taking any other medications for mental health problems
- be aged between 18-70
- be fluent in English.
Participants will be reimbursed €60 for taking part.
