December saw a lot of new papers entering the Top 10 Most Read, with half of them being from the current issue. Patel et al‘s research paper, complete with video abstract and press release, questions whether antidepressants increase the risk of mania and bipolar disorder in people with depression in the top spot this month. Miller et al and Kristensen et al maintain their places at numbers two and three, with papers on clinical trial registration and the effect of statins on survival.

Berntsen et al enter the list at number seven, with a prospective cohort study investigating the association between alcohol consumption and mortality in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, and Jonas et al write about surgery and the placebo response.
