• Changed reimbursement for medicines for depression and anxiety as of 5 March 2012

    | 07 October 2011 |

    With effect from 5 March 2012, the reimbursement is changed for certain medicinal products for treatment of depression and anxiety (antidepressants and anxiolytics). Based on the Reimbursement Committee's recommendation, the Danish Medicines Agency has decided that in future the general rule is that treatment with inexpensive medicines (e.g. sertraline and citalopram) must be attempted before reimbursement can be granted for more expensive medicines (e.g. escitalopram, duloxetine, pregabalin and agomelatine).
