Nutrition Status, BMD, and SSRIs

Brief Summary:
The association between selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) use and bone mass density (BMD) has been debated. Some have suggested features of depression, which SSRIs are prescribed to treat, may be a cause of decreased BMD, such as poor overall food intake at the time of SSRI use. Our study seeks to determine whether SSRI use in adults is associated with lower than average BMD, and if there is an association between low micronutrient intake, SSRI use, and a low BMD.
