The point prevalence use of Anti depressant (AD) use in Ireland in 2011 was 5.5 % and Benzodiazepine (BDZ) use was 4.1%1. Depression is under recognised and under treated in hospitalised patients2 but the prevalence of AD use in acute general medical inpatients has been little studied internationally and unknown in Ireland. We report the point prevalence of AD and BZD use in a general medical hospital inpatient population.
