Depression Research Study for Adults Age 60 and Older

Are you 60 and older and experiencing symptoms of depression including sadness, loss of pleasure in activities, sleeping difficulties, poor concentration, guilt or feelings of worthlessness?

If so, you may be eligible to participate in a research study at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine that will test whether adding a second medication will help treat depression better in older people who do not achieve a full recovery with antidepressant medication alone.

Participation in the study lasts between three and 10 months.  No fees are charged to participants for taking part in this study.  For more information, please contact Jill Houle at 412-246-6006.  Visit the Late Life Depression Prevention and Treatment Center website for more information.
