In this study, antidepressant dispensing to adolescents and young adults was rising before the COVID-19 outbreak and rose 63.5% faster afterward. Many more females than males received antidepressants during COVID. What this article doesn't give are definitive explanations as to why, just some guesses (in the discussion section). I don't really see the "why," so perhaps you can enlighten me. Is this a coincidence or a finding based in solid reasoning?

Proud to be on the list this year. 5 in a row! Thanks to my great patients who it's been a pleasure to help. Appointments still available.

Hopefully, this explains why many of my patients' medications have been so hard to find. Lots of government regulations have decreased the ability for generic manufacturers to produce what I prescribe. Unfortunately, I don't know how this improves unless the regulators are replaced by those with a different opinion.
