Characteristics associated with use of homoeopathic drugs for psychiatric symptoms in the general population

This interesting study was conducted with the objective to explore which patient characteristics are associated in naturalistic conditions with the lifetime use of homoeopathic treatment for psychiatric symptoms.
Lifetime use of psychotropic treatment was explored in a sample of 36,785 persons, participating in the Mental Health Survey in the General Population. Characteristics associated with use of homoeopathic treatments, associated or not with conventional psychotropic drugs, were explored using multivariate analyses.
According to the results, use of homoeopathic treatment for psychiatric symptoms was reported by 1.3% of persons. Younger age, female gender and high educational level were associated with use of homoeopathy. Half of homoeopathy users presented at least one Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) diagnosis, most frequently anxiety disorders. Their diagnostic profile was similar to that of persons reporting use of anxiolytics or hypnotics. Compared to persons with no lifetime use of psychotropic drugs, persons using homoeopathy were more likely to present with a diagnosis of mood disorder or anxiety disorder. Compared to those using conventional psychotropic drugs, they presented less frequently with psychiatric disorders, with the exception of anxiety disorders.
At the end of the study, it was concluded that the homoeopathic treatment for psychiatric symptoms appears to be used mainly to reduce anxiety symptoms in the general population.
Schwabe India’s Alpha-TS has been used for tension, stress, anxiety, etc. since decades.
