One study found that exercise-alone worked better than drugs-alone or drugs-plus-exercise, and that adding drugs hindered long-term recovery according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.
Exercise-only worked best for depression; Drugs HINDERED the Long-Term Stay-Well Rate
Whitaker notes that a study on depression in the late-1990’s from Duke University compared
- drugs-only versus
- exercise-only versus
They expected the drugs-plus-exercise group to do the best, but this was NOT the case.
They found that the exercise-only group did the best after 10 months, and found that drugs HINDERED the long-term stay-well rate in the drugs-plus-exercise group.
