A simple online drug name can reveal a lot about a person’s health, according to a new study.
The study, published Monday in the journal PLOS One, is based on a 2014 survey of more than 15,000 people who had used online drugs to determine if they had been prescribed a drug by their doctor.
In addition, researchers measured the participants’ medical and social status.
The participants also reported whether they were male or female, how often they used prescription medications and if they ever smoked.
They also took a questionnaire to determine their general health and mental health.
The results showed that among those who reported taking prescription medications, the prevalence of taking prescription medication in the past year was higher among those reporting being male or a male who reported having a family history of mental illness than among those indicating they were female or female who reported not having a mental illness.
The researchers note that while they were able to assess prevalence of prescription drug use among the women and men, the results did not show an association between the two groups’ use of prescription medications.
What they did find, however, was that men were more likely to report having a psychiatric diagnosis.
“Although there is little information about the clinical features of men and women in the United States, there are some findings about men and men in general that are consistent with psychiatric diagnoses,” lead author Matthew Lippman, an associate professor of psychology at University of California at Irvine, told Mashable in an email.
“For example, men were significantly more likely than women to report current mental health problems, and men reported having more mental health disorders than women.
Additionally, the men were also significantly more often than women were taking prescription drugs.”
According to Lippmann, the findings suggest that, “if you have a mental health disorder, you’re more likely not to be taking a prescription medication.
In this case, it may be more appropriate to use medication in conjunction with other treatments.”
Lippaman and his colleagues also noted that men may be less likely to seek help from mental health professionals for their mental health needs.
“The results suggest that men are less likely than men to seek professional help for their medical problems, which in turn could be associated with the increased use of medication in these groups,” he said.
“Additionally, the association between psychiatric diagnoses and prescription medication use was found to be robust across age groups.”
A 2016 study found that people who reported high levels of mental health and substance abuse problems were more than twice as likely to have used prescription medication as people who did not.
“If you have high mental health, substance abuse, or mental health or substance abuse issues, you should be looking for additional health care providers and services, particularly mental health providers and drug treatment providers,” Lippam said.
He added that he hopes that by using the data in the new study, people can “get better information about which treatments and services are best suited to their needs.”
The researchers found that among people who indicated that they used a prescription drug, the likelihood of using prescription medication was about 30 percent higher in those who were more educated.
In comparison, the rate was about 6 percent lower among people with a high school diploma or less education.
Among those with a college degree or less, the proportion who used prescription drugs was about 10 percent lower, while those with more education were about 10 percentage points higher.
Lippamm said that it is not possible to predict who will develop psychiatric disorders, but he said that mental health treatment should be part of a patient’s “long-term plan” and recommended that people seeking treatment for mental health issues “look for a mental wellness specialist or psychologist to discuss the diagnosis and treatment options.”
He added, “I think that a large part of this is due to the fact that we don’t know how to diagnose and treat mental health conditions in the future.”
