Antidepressants versus placebo for generalised anxiety disorder (GAD)

To assess the effects of antidepressants in GAD in adults, specifically:

  1. to determine the efficacy of antidepressants in alleviating symptoms of GAD, in comparison to placebo;
  2. to review the acceptability of antidepressants in GAD, by investigating the adverse effects, including the general prevalence of adverse effects, compared to placebo.

This is a protocol.
