Abstract : Depression is a common, severe and disabling disease for which treatments have proven efficacy. We wanted to know the output drugs prescriptions for patients hospitalized for uripolar depression at the Centre Hospitaller du Rouvray in 2012 and assess if they matched with guidelines. METHODS: The medical prescriptions and diagnoses-codes of inpatients in 2012 were extracted and computer processed to retain only those patients hospitafized for uripolar depression with or without psychiatric comorbidities. They were then analyzed and were subject of comparison in terms of the severity of the episode. RESULTS: 424 patients met the inclusion criteria. The majority of patients were hospitalized for severe depression and half had a comorbidity of substance abuse, addiction, anxiety or personality disorder. Eighty-six percent of patients were taking an antidepressant. A strategy of augmentation was present in 40% of patients and significantly more frequent in severe patients (51% versus 28%). Except sedative treatments, those most often associated with antidepressants were the second-generation antipsychotics (30%), anticonvulsants (10%) and Lithium (7%). The posology of antidepressants and second-generation antipsychotics were consistent with the recommendations. CONCLUSION: The treatments of depression at the Centre Hospitaller du Rouvray in 2012 were in line with guidelines. Treatment of unipolar depression hospitalized at the Centre Hospitaller du Rouvrav in 2012.
