Abstract

The authors set up two groups, the treatment group and the control group, to observe the influence of electro-acupuncture on the side effects produced by fluoxetine in the treatment of depression. The result showed that electro-acupuncture had a certain action in reducing the side effects of fluoxetine and it is more effective along with the prolonging of the administration duration.
