Les méthodes alternatives et complémentaires aux traitements pharmacologiques pour la prise en charge des patients souffrant de dépression

Abstract : Depression is an invalidating and disabling pathology that affects more and more people all over the world. It has a major impact in terms of morbidity and mortality and is also a very important expense in the total cost of health services. This pathology can reach individuals of all ages, it is a real public health problem. In addition to its growing impact, depression is a disease where a large number of patients present with recurring and persistent disorders not relieved by conventional therapies. The objective of this study is to explore the alternative and complementary methods to antidepressant pharmacological treatments for the management of depression.The problem is therefore : what is the role of the dispensary pharmacist in the care path of these patients and how cant hey accompany, advise and improve their compliance in order to have a positive impact in their care process and healing ? To answer these questions, various alternative techniques (phytotherapy, nutrition, aromatherapy etc.) and complementary will be exposed. In addition, a survey distributed to patients in pharmacies was analyzed in order to obtain their opinion on these different problems. Based on these findings, depression is an extremely complex condition and each patient must be treated differently and in its entirety in order to obtain the best response. More and more people are using secondary medicines and the place of the pharmacist is paramount in the care path of these patients. However, it remains to be seen that this is still a disease whose causes are still poorly known and need to be investigated further, research on new therapeutics is emerging notably on the role of the intestinal microbiota. They could in a short time revolutionize the management of depressive patients.
