Is exercise effective in the treatment of depression?
Is exercise effective in the treatment of depression? Evidence-Based Answer: Exercise programs produce a moderate clinical improvement in depression symptoms, comparable to that seen with antidepressant medications (SOR: A, meta-analysis). The public health dose of exercise (150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week) appears adequate (SOR: B, small RCT).
