我们可以战胜抑郁症吗

如果你在最大的医疗网站"医疗在线"上输入"情绪不稳"字样,你可以看到近62000条内容;如果将搜寻范围缩小到"随机对照试验"--一种被认为是最可靠的调查治疗效果的方法--你仍然可以看到超过3200条的内容。

考虑到抑郁症在健康、医疗保险费用、以及工作能力等方面引起的全球范围内的巨大影响,网上能提供这么多的信息量应该是一件好事。然而,如果仔细看一些个案,你会发现,大部分信息都将心理的、生理的、或者生化的困扰和抑郁症联系起来。其中没有哪一条信息可以帮助决定:什么样的病人应该在什么时候采用何种治疗方法。

当然,仍然可以找到大约1500条关于治疗方法的研究:精神病药物、ECT(同位素发射计算机辅助断层显像的英文缩写。兼具CT和核医学两种优势。)、明亮光线、健身、心理疗法、甚至针灸。的确,这些研究中很多都是用来证明在短期内,有些是在长期内,各种治疗方法所产生的影响,通常都是在疗效和安全性之间作出一个可接受的选择。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
