More often than other Russians, antidepressants are taken in Moscow, the Moscow region and St. Petersburg, and less often in Chechnya and Tyva.

Analysts of the Chestny Znak digital marking system came to this conclusion, the results of their study are cited by RBC. They profaned the demand for such drugs in the subjects of the Russian Federation in terms of the number of permanent residents.

It turned out that only one person out of 172 accepts Tuva, in Chechnya - every 120th, in the Nenets Autonomous Okrug - every 70th.

In Moscow, every eighth person is treated for depression, in St. Petersburg and the Moscow region - every ninth. Kaluga and Rostov regions also entered the top five most "depressed" Russian regions.

In March, sales of antidepressants increased significantly in the country. The volume of sales of sedatives from February 28 to March 6 exceeded 525 million rubles, exceeding the figures of a year ago by almost 4.5 times.

Earlier, psychotherapist Alexey Bobrov noted that antidepressants can be safely taken by patients to whom they were prescribed by a doctor if there are relevant medical indications.
