Using Antidepressants and the Risk of Stroke Recurrence: Report From a National Representative Cohort Study

​The chances of experiencing subsequent stroke attacks may be high among stroke patients taking antidepressant medications

​This study examined if there is an association between the use of antidepressants and the tendency to suffer from recurrent stroke attacks. A total of 16,770 stroke patients from Taiwan participated in this study and their drug prescription records were reviewed over a 10-year period. 

The team of investigators found a large number of cases of stroke re-occurrence among users of antidepressant medications. The evidence from this study indicate that stroke patients on antidepressant therapy may be highly vulnerable to further stroke attacks.
