3 doctors agree
In brief: Pulmonary fibrosis
To my knowledge, antidepressants have not been shown to assist with any respiratory aspects of pulmonary fibrosis.
It is common for fibrosis patients to be depressed, and may be reasonable that these depressed patients could benefit from antidepressants.

Many patients with IPF benefit from non pharmacotherapeutic measures. Hence the need to see a clinical psychologist.
