general, doctors may have the same disorders that strike anyone else; doctors are not invincible. Although depressive symptoms seem to be prevalent in the early years of the medical career, some of this may be due to exhausting work stress by frequent on-call work.We lack representative studies on the occurrence of valid depression among doctors compared to that in other occupational groups. Suicide is more common among doctors than among other groups of academics, but since it is also very common in veterinarians, this may also be due to available knowledge and means (drugs) for committing suicide during mental health deterioration. Alcoholism and drug abuse is an additional known risk factor for suicide and the SAD triad (suicidal behavior–alcoholism–depression) may be particularly important for medical doctors. From clinical experience with doctor–patients, we know the slippery slope from self-medication with tranquilizers to cope with the stresses to dependency of alcohol and drugs, in addition to other boundary violations.There are very few clinical studies including diagnostic interviews among doctors. One previous Spanish study emphasizes the importance of dual diagnoses, especially in alcohol dependence and mood disorders. From own experience, we know that bipolar disorder (type II) is quite common among physicians, but we lack sound empirical studies that compare occurrence of mental disorders in doctors with that in other groups. American impaired physician programs have for many years shown high and promising recovery rates (70–80%)The programs used to focus on addiction and substance abuse, but they now put increasing emphasis on psychiatric diagnoses. A family history, opioid use, and psychiatric comorbidity predicted relapse of substance abuse among doctors and other healthcare workers.

Very true Dr.Praveenji. Still more to go a head in analysis... Why idoes it happen ?...More to medical professionals ? I think traditional concept of medical proffession as a huge earning chair... Paid medical educational system @40 %!!! Hardly 5 % UG or PG are academically committed.. When they face the reality of inadequate knowledge,they ligt have to suffer in all compartments of practice resulting in frustration and depressions.. Those who are meritious the earn money and fame hardly keep the foot prints of hardships , the faced for their own generation, but run the show of establishment, they also involved in money earned qualifications. But Gold is a gold in short or long run and vice versa for Brass !!!!. Regards Dr.Saab.
