ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the relationship between the degree of antidepressant nonresponse and subsequent response to lithium and triiodothyronine (T3) augmentation. METHOD: This is a retrospective analysis of data combined from two previous controlled studies of lithium and triiodothyronine augmentation of tricyclic antidepressants. RESULTS: There was no difference in the rate of augmentation response between partial and nonresponders to tricyclic antidepressant treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Augmentation response does not appear to be related to the degree of nonresponse to the preceding antidepressant trial.
