Participants invited to join UI studies of new antidepressants
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Men and women age 18 and older who experience the
symptoms of depression are invited to participate in one of two University
of Iowa College of Medicine studies of new investigational antidepressants.
The key symptoms of depression include feeling "down" or depressed,
difficulty sleeping, eating too much or too little, feeling tired or not
having enough energy, and low self-esteem and not being able to enjoy oneself.
Dr. William Coryell, a UI professor of psychiatry who studies the treatment
of depression, is the senior investigator for these clinical trials.
Persons who are feeling depressed and are not on medication, as well
as those who are currently taking an antidepressant medication, may qualify
for one of the studies.
For more information, call the UI department of psychiatry at 1-888-850-8531.
