  Abstract Objective: To explore the effect of combined acupuncture with Chinese medicine on the overall function of patients with post-stroke depression (PSD). Methods: A total of 128 cases were randomly allocated into 4 groups, namely, a Chinese medicine group, an acupuncture group, a combined acupuncture with Chinese medicine group and a Western medication group, 32 cases in each group. Other than routine treatment, patients in all 4 groups were respectively treated with Chinese medicine, acupuncture, combined acupuncture with Chinese medicine and Fluoxetine Capsule. Then the treatment effects were evaluated using Hamilton depression rating scale (HAMD), neurological impairment severity (NIS) and functional comprehensive assessment (FCA) before and after treatments. Results: After treatment, both HAMD and NIS scores were decreased (P<0.01), wheras FCA scores were increased (P<0.01). Regarding the inter-group comparison, combined acupuncture with Chinese medicine group had statistical difference when compared with the other three groups (P<0.05 or P<0.01). There were no statistical differences among the Chinese medicine group, the acupuncture group and the Western medication group. Conclusion: Each treatment protocol improves the depressive symptoms and neurological function in PSD patients and enhances their overall function. Combined acupuncture with Chinese medicine can obtain a synergistic effect.
