Literature Review on Electroconvulsive Therapy: 1980-1995
Barry Leonard (ed). The use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in major depression typically involves sequential treatment trials. Most patients fail one or more antidepressant medications before receiving ECT, & those who respond to ECT usually receive continuation pharmacotherapy (CP). This report reviews the relations of medication resistance during the acute episode to short-term response to ECT & the use of CP & continuation ECT as methods to prevent relapse. Research contradicts the long-held view that failure to respond to adequate trials of anti-depressant medication has no impact on response to ECT. Detailed recommendations are given for future research.
