From an SSRI to a TCA) (Rush et al. 2006; Thase et al. 2007b). Augmentation Strategies Generally, in patients who have had some response to an antidepressant, the preferable action is to continue the antidepressant to maintain the gains that have been made and to augment with another medication (Pridmore and Turnier-Shea 2004). Of the many possible augmenting agents from which the clinician can choose, lithium and thyroid hormone have the longest history and record of efficacy (Carvalho et al.

Unfortunately, in some patients the antidepressant appears to lose its effectiveness during maintenance despite being prescribed at the same dosage to which the patient responded during the acute treatment phase. An observational investigation of participants in the National Institute of Mental Health Collaborative Depression Study found that 25% of participants had a loss of antidepressant response (Solomon et al. 2005). Rates of recurrence in clinical trials assessing maintenance pharmacotherapy have been found to vary considerably, ranging from 9% to 57% (Byrne and Rothschild 1998).

One study reported a correlation between the degree of platelet MAO inhibition and response (Ravaris et al. 1976). The study, which used phenelzine, found that a higher dosage of the drug (60 mg/day) was significantly better in treating depression and anxiety than the lower dosage (30 mg/day), and only the higher dosage achieved 80% platelet MAO inhibition. However, studies with other MAOIs were not able to reproduce this effect. Side Effects Whereas hypertensive crises (discussed later in this section) are the most dramatic and feared side effect of MAOIs, on a day-to-day basis the most common side effects of MAOIs are orthostatic hypotension, dizziness, insomnia, daytime sedation, and daytime activation.
