Abstract

There is disagreement about whether depressive symptoms in schizophrenia are part of the basic disease process, or whether they represent adverse effects of treatment with antipsychotic medications. In a sample of initially antipsychotic drug-free acutely hospitalized patients with schizophrenia (N= 104), we measured change in depressive symptoms after 4 weeks of treatment. We also examined the relationship of changes in depressive symptoms to changes in positive and negative schizophrenic symptoms. Depressive symptoms improved after 4 weeks of anti-psychotic medication treatment, and their improvement corresponded with improvement in both positive and negative schizophrenic: symptoms. These results suggest that depressive symptoms in schizophrenia are related to the disease process itself, at least during acuteexacerbations of schizophrenia. Depressive symptoms may be responsive to antipsychotic: medications directly or as a secondary response to improvement in positive and negative symptoms. Copyright (C) 2001 by W.B. Saunders Company.
