 One Out of Seven Scots Battling Depression

The report states: "It does not equate to people being treated for depression.This is because many drugs classified as anti-depressants can also used for conditions other than depression. These include but are not restricted to neuropathic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety disorders."
