Abstract

In a double-blind, controlled study 158 outpatients with unipolar depression were treated for six weeks with amoxapine, imipramine, or placebo to assess the antidepressant effects of the new dibenzooxazepine compound, amoxapine. Forty-five amoxapine, 43 imipramine, and 27 placebo patients completed at least four weeks of treatment. Active drugs produced significantly more improvement at treatment endpoint, according to several physician-rated measures, but patient-rated measures failed to differentiate among treatments. Both active drugs at daily doses up to 200 mg produced an equal amount of moderate and marked global improvement, and both produced significantly more side effects than did placebo.
