Dr. Philip Muskin Says Acupuncture Not Replacement for Medication: Reuters

Acupuncture As Good As Counseling for Depression: Study
September 24, 2013 - September 25, 2013

"What this says is if you don't get completely better, there are other options," Dr. Philip Muskin, a psychiatrist at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, told Reuters Health.

"One option would be to take a different medication, but by this study these would be valid options," said Muskin, who was not involved with the new research.


He cautioned, however, that counseling and acupuncture are not replacements for medication.
