Abstract

Results indicate that major depressive disorders among the aged can be effectively treated by administration of sertraline, fluoxetine, reboxetine, nortriptyline, imipramine, and buproprion sustained release. When secondary outcome measures have been utilized, sertraline has been determined to be superior to nortriptyline and fluoxetine in improving cognitive functioning. Sertraline may have fewer side effects than nortriptyline. Sertraline, citalopram, and mianserin are effective in reducing depressive symptoms among aged patients with mild or moderate dementia. Imipramine, reboxetine and paroxetine have been proven in double-blind studies to reduce depressive symptoms among dysthymic patients or patients with minor depression, and sertraline has been proven to reduce symptoms in an open trial. The results suggest that maintenance therapy with antidepressants in old age may be safe andeffective in preventing recurrences of depression, but further studies areneeded. Unfortunately, fewer studies have been conducted regarding the effects of psychological treatment of depression in old age. Curr Opin Psychiatry 14:387-393. (C) 2001 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
