New depression treatments favour a tailored approach and include recommendations for the use of shock therapy and other alternatives, including exercise when people fail to get relief from drugs. The guidelines, issued by the American Psychiatric Association, are the first update on depression treatment in more than a decade. "The five-year process of intense review, discussion and thoughtful revision-making has led us to today`s release of new guidelines that we believe will improve patient care," Dr. Alan Gelenberg, an Arizona-based psychiatrist who led the group that drafted the guidelines, said in a statement. "We are hopeful these guidelines will lead to improved lives for many patients."
