Active Comparator: Creatine
Subjects randomized to this study arm will receive 10 grams of creatine daily for 8 weeks.
Creatine is a nutritional supplement.
Other Name: Creatine Monohydrate
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Subjects randomized to this study arm will receive 10 grams of placebo daily for 8 weeks.
The placebo is an inactive ingredient similar in appearance, weight and density to the active treatment.
Other Name: Placebo Control
- Brain phosphocreatine (PCr) concentrations [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]PCr will be measured through phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P-MRS). This will be performed in a 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner.
- Children's Depression Rating Scale-Revised (CDRS-R); Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]The CDRS-R and MADRS will be administered to understand the severity of depressive symptoms, and how these symptoms change throughout the course of the study.
