Antidepressant drug product sales plummet as patents expire and individuals flee to safer alternatives The market for antidepressant drugs is quickly drying up as patents about long-period blockbusters like Lexapro, owned by Forest Laboratories, and Seroquel, owned by AstraZeneca, continue to expire. And because they are unable to develop fresh multi-billion-dollar blockbuster medicines to take their areas, many drug producers are ditching the antidepressant business altogether, especially as studies continue steadily to emerge showing that antidepressants are useless and cause more harm than good generally.

For both the interventions, the probability of HIV-infection was less than in the enhanced control arm significantly.
