Antidepressant use and 10-year incident fracture risk: the population-based Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study (CaMoS).

Individuals on antidepressants may have a high tendency of breaking a bone.

​This study was carried out to determine the risk of fracture associated with the use of anti-depressant medications. Researchers followed 6,645 Canadian men and women for 10 years, monitoring their usage of anti-depressants and the incidence of fracture. 

Researchers discovered that antidepressant users were more prone to experience fragility fracture than non-users of these drugs. This study strengthens the body of evidence implicating antidepressant use as a contributing factor to the occurrence of fracture.
