Risk For Developing Depression High Within Three-Month Period After Stroke

HCP Live (10/26, Lutz) reports, “In the three month period after experiencing a stroke, the risk for developing depression is as much as eight times higher,” researchers found after analyzing data on “157,000 patients” who “had a first time hospitalization for a stroke between January 1, 2001 and December 31, 2011,” and a matching “non stroke, hospitalized population” of controls. The findings were published in the October issue of JAMA Psychiatry.
