Retrospective 7,230 hospitalized COVID-19 patients in France, 345 receiving an antidepressant medication within 48 hours of admission. There was a significant association between antidepressant use and reduced risk of intubation or death (HR 0.56, p < 0.001). Fluvoxamine is not included because there was only one person taking it in this study.
