Studies In Follow Up

Allopurinol is a medication usually used to prevent gout - it has several positive effects on the heart and blood vessels, is inexpensive and is already widely used in patients. Ischaemic heart disease is common in people in the UK.
In this study, we want to improve the treatment of patients with ischaemic heart disease by investigating whether adding allopurinol to these patients’ usual medications will reduce their risk of having a stroke, heart attack or of dying due to cardiovascular disease.

The study team would like to see whether giving personal feedback to people with depression, or low mood, can help them to get better more quickly. If you have attended the surgery for low mood or depression you may be given an information pack by the clinician seeing you, or we may send an information pack out to you.
The REDUCE Study aims to help people on long-term antidepressants reduce the dose of their antidepressant one step at a time, over some weeks or months, and eventually stop taking it altogether if appropriate. This would be led and supported by your GP (or nurse prescriber), and you would have follow-up appointments for support and monitoring for any withdrawal symptoms or recurrence of depression.
