Venlafaxine Augmentation in Treatment Resistant Depression
Comparison of Venlafaxine Augmentation With Quetiapine v.s. Placebo in Treatment Resistant Depression

This is an assessment of the efficacy of venlafaxine-HCL augmentation with the neuroleptic quetiapine in treatment resistant depression.

We examine the efficacy of Venlafaxine-HCL augmentation with the neuroleptic Quetiapine in treatment resistant depression in a double-blind randomized clinical trial. Secondary objective is the evaluation of pharmacogenetic factors contributing to drug efficacy in treatment resistant depression.
