    Abstract

    Depression is a frequent diagnosis for people with dementia, with between 25% and 42% of such patients receiving antidepressants. The diagnosis can be challenging to make, and this patient group is more vulnerable to side effects of commonly used medications. This article outlines the diagnostic considerations and therapeutic approaches for managing depression in people with dementia.
