Copenhagen, Nov. 21 – New European studies are linked to an increased risk of atrial fibrillation on depression – an unstable, rapid heart rate increase called heart rate.
According to a study conducted by researchers from the Aarhus University in Denmark, the new study began antidepressant therapy between 2000 and 2013 and reviewed the 785,254 Danish citizens compared with the control group.
Researchers assessed the risk of monthly fibrillation before the patients were depressed, untreated and started treatment before starting treatment.
The results published European Journal of Preventive Cardiologythe antidepressant showed that the drug was at risk of atrial fibrillation three times higher in the first month of treatment, but it gradually dropped 1,37 times higher in 2-6 months and decreased by 1.11 times in the next 6-12 months.
However, before antidepressants start, anti-depressants antidepressants mean that they are not responsible for the high frequency of atrial fibrillation commonly seen in depressed individuals.
"It is important to know that there is a connection between mind and heart. Depression presupposes the development of coronary artery disease and deteriorates its predictions, "says Morten Feerg-Gron, researcher.
"The recipe for antidepressants used as an indicator of depression was associated with a threefold increase in the degree of fermentation. A decline in time may suggest that treatment can reduce this risk. «
"This antidepressant shows that the drug itself is not associated with the development of atrial fibrillation. If you suffer from depression, there is no need to worry about fibrillation of the medication, "said Fergören-Gron.
"A message for patients with an atrial fibrillation – it is not necessary to fight antidepressants when needed. Make sure your mind is upheld because the study supports the evidence that our heart problems can hurt the heart. "
Atypical fibrillation is a common cause of heart rhythm and causes 20-30% of all strokes, and also increases the risk of other conditions such as demenenosis, heart attack, renal disease, and premature death. Signs: chest pain, "race" or unusual heart attack, weakness, tiredness, discrimination, dizziness and short breathing. – AFP-Relaxnews
