Introduction

Am J Psychiatry Jun High-quality evidence supports antidepressant—antipsychotic combinations, and perhaps particularly for patients with marked depressive or negative symptoms. In individual studies, adding antidepressants to antipsychotics benefited these patients, but changes in practice often require more substantial evidence. Compared with controls, antidepressants did not exacerbate psychosis or increase premature discontinuation due to ineffectiveness or adverse effects. Effect sizes for adjunctive treatment showed a trend to be larger for subpopulations with more pronounced depressive symptoms, postpsychotic depression, and negative symptoms. No differences were found in analyses of individual antidepressants, although several monoamine oxidase inhibitors as a group, amitriptyline, duloxetine, sertraline, and trazodone seemed individually better than controls. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors particularly citalopram and fluvoxamine appeared to improve negative symptoms.

Antipsychotics are first-line treatment of schizophrenia. They are often accompanied by adjunctive treatments, such as antidepressant AD or mood stabilizer MS , although there is only limited information of their use in first-episode schizophrenia. This study aimed to investigate AD and MS initiation and factors associated with initiation in persons with first-episode schizophrenia. Cox proportional hazard models were used to investigate factors associated with AD or MS initiation. Among persons with first-episode schizophrenia, Female gender, younger age, and benzodiazepine use were associated with higher risk of AD and MS initiation. The number of previous psychoses was associated with decreased risk of AD and increased risk of MS initiation.

Haloperidol and benztropine treatment was continued, while those patients who consistently scored greater than 17 on the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression were randomly assigned to the following double-blind treatment groups for 4 weeks: adjunctive amitriptyline hydrochloride, desipramine hydrochloride, or placebo. Adjunctive desipramine or amitriptyline showed no significant therapeutic advantage, when compared with haloperidol and placebo, on the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale or the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression. After 4 weeks of combined therapy, patients receiving adjunctive amitriptyline or desipramine, as compared with those receiving adjunctive placebo, tended to score higher on the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale hallucinatory behavior item and on the thinking disturbance factor than patients receiving placebo. These results suggest that adjunctive antidepressants are not indicated for the treatment of depressive symptoms in actively psychotic schizophrenic inpatients. Adjunctive antidepressants may retard the rate of resolution of psychosis in this population. Arch Gen Psychiatry. Coronavirus Resource Center.

Diagnosis of schizophrenia involves ruling out other mental health disorders and determining that symptoms are not due to substance abuse, medication or a medical condition. Determining a diagnosis of schizophrenia may include:. Schizophrenia requires lifelong treatment, even when symptoms have subsided.

Jump to navigation. Depression is common in people with schizophrenia and is associated with substantial problems including an increased risk of suicide. Many clinicians use antidepressant drugs in addition to anti-psychotics in order to treat depression. This review identified eleven randomised controlled trials that compared antidepressants with a placebo in people with schizophrenia who also had depression. There was some evidence that antidepressants did lead to an improvement in global outcome, but the small number of studies providing usable data and their poor quality, suggest that this evidence should be interpreted with caution.

We focused on the application of antidepressants in schizophrenia treatment in this review. Augmentation of antidepressants with antipsychotics is a common clinical practice to treat resistant symptoms in schizophrenia, including depressive symptoms, negative symptoms, comorbid obsessive—compulsive symptoms, and other psychotic manifestations. However, recent systematic review of the clinical effects of antidepressants is lacking.
