This observational study corroborates the high therapeutic efficacy of escitalopram treatment, while confirming the tolerability profile, in a naturalistic treatment setting.

Fifteen adult pathological gamblers (DSM-IV criteria) were administered citalopram in an open-label fashion for up to 12 weeks. Subjects were rated at baseline and at 2-week intervals on measures of gambling severity and depression, and monthly on quality of life.

This article reviews evidence-based pharmacotherapy for children and adolescents with depression. Several randomized controlled trials (RCTs) support the use of fluoxetine for the treatment of childhood and adolescent depression as well as escitalopram in the treatment of adolescent depression. To date, one RCT has demonstrated the effectiveness of sertraline or citalopram for the treatment of major depressive disorder in youth. Only a small number of RCTs for depression have included children, and none of these trials were adequately powered to detect differences in the efficacy of medication between children and adolescents.
The present study examined the efficacy and tolerability of acute escitalopram treatment in depressed patients aged 60 years or older.

Depression is emerging as an independent cardiovascular disease risk factor. We investigated whether treating depression in older participants impacted on arterial stiffness, a known cardiovascular disease risk factor and a clinical marker of arterial aging.

Taking into account adjusted total costs and incremental quality of life gained, fluoxetine dominated paroxetine and citalopram with 63.4% and 79.3% of the bootstrap replications in the dominance quadrant, respectively. Additionally, fluoxetine was cost-effective over sertraline with 83.4% of the bootstrap replications below the threshold of 33,936 US$/quality-adjusted life year (30,000 euro/QALY).
Whole rat embryos were cultured in protein-free media or human serum to which drugs (amiodarone, citalopram, dofetilide, haloperidol, paroxetine, quetiapine, or trazodone) known to induce embryonic bradycardia were added. Embryonic heart rate was observed before and after addition of drugs.

The interactions between warfarin and antidepressants can have potentially serious consequences resulting from enhanced or reduced anticoagulant activity. Information about such interactions was obtained from a Medline and hand search of the published literature, and by directly contacting manufacturers. The different classes of antidepressants are discussed in turn. The possible mechanisms are considered with particular reference to the cytochrome p450 system. From currently available data on the newer antidepressants our conclusions are that citalopram, nefazodone and sertraline may be relatively less likely to interact with warfarin. Fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, paroxetine and moclobemide appear to have the highest potential of the antidepressants for interactions. There is insufficient data on venlafaxine to make a prediction. The clinical implications of these findings are discussed and specific recommendations for International Normalized Ratio monitoring are suggested.
