Abstract

Depression is an extremely common problem in general practice. The great majority of depressed patients are treated by the general practitioner himself. Relatively few are referred to the psychiatric services. The general practitioner requires antidepressant drugs which are not only effective but are well tolerated, since his patients must continue the activities of daily living, do not impair psychomotor performance, have no serious toxicity, especially cardiotoxicity, and are safe in overdosage. Ideally rapid action would be very desirable too.
