sohaib111Won't having an MI be a very big risk factor for another one ?
And also if they wanted this answer (the anti-depressant), why would they just add that his LDL is inreasing in the last sentence...+62019-07-08T12:42:33Z
bharatpillaiwhy antidepressant therapy though? there are not enough features given to suggest MDD.
He's 56 years old, not an elderly single male so not at the highest "classical" population at risk of suicide? the question is so ambiguous...
Given MI, wouldn't chronic alcoholic intake predispose him to dilated cardiomyopathy?+2020-01-18T15:38:46Z
neovanillaI don't believe it's that he has MDD by the clinical definition. It's more that his QoL has probably changed drastically since the MI and MIs are strongly associated with decreased outlook on life, especially considering how common it is to get a second MI soon after the first. I don't know the stats on suicide post-MI, but helping the patient's depression to make him more pro-active to help himself prevent another MI would be better than "a diet high in omega 3 FAs" (at least, this was my justification, as mbourne was saying)+2020-01-20T20:57:28Z
