Botox for Depression?

By Logan Lafferty

Car crashes are common for sleepy doctors according to a new study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Due to fatigue and stress caused by working long hours in the hospital, of the 300 doctors surveyed, 11 percent were involved in a car accident during their residency and 43 percent say they nearly got into a crash. The traffic incidents were also caused by feelings of burnout or depression, according to the study.
