Diet and Depression
A growing body of evidence suggests that a diet that promotes heart health also supports brain health.

Benzodiazepines and Dementia
Benzodiazepines probably do not contribute to the risk of irreversible cognitive decline, but they should be used sparingly and cautiously in older patients.

Antidepressants, Heart Disease, and Mortality
Depression can present life-threatening risks to patients with heart conditions, but antidepressant medications can be both protective and potentially hazardous in this population.

In Brief
A High and Increasing Trajectory of Depressive Symptoms Is Associated with Increased Risk of Dementia; Androgen Deprivation Therapy for Prostate Cancer is Linked to Depression

Antidepressant Adherence Lowers Mortality Risk
Poor antidepressant adherence can lead to a greater risk of relapse, recurrence, and chronic symptoms, and new evidence suggests it also increases the risk of all-cause mortality.
