New Treatment Options under Research
Lack of an effective and focused therapy for suicidal attempts is compelling the use of alternative, less effective and unapproved therapies. Researchers are in an endeavor to find an effective therapeutic solution to this perilous condition. A recent study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, demonstrated the benefits of administering buprenorphine in curbing the suicidal thoughts after one week of the trial. Anti-depressants and some anti-psychotic medications take longer time to be effective in curing suicidal thoughts. The drug could become the first fast-acting anti-suicide drug in future studies also result with similar findings as in this preliminary study.
