This has been concluded by a team of researchers in their recent statements marking the risks of depression and anxiety to be higher for the spouses of the heart attack victims. The report coming from Danish research has clearly mentioned in its findings that spouse of heart attack patients, who unfortunately lose their battle to their heart problem put themselves more into a habit of taking anti-depressant in a period of a year only and that too at three times higher risks as compared to the other group.
Similar risks were seen increasing by 17 percent in case of spouses of the heart attack survivors. In context to same, the European Heart Journal has also submitted its reports and confirmed a higher use of anxiety drugs since a year.
Regarding the situation, Ms. Maureen Talbot, senior cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation, said: "A heart attack can impact the whole family, and this study emphasizes the importance of caring for the partners of heart attack sufferers".
