Fluvoxamine and chlorimipramine in endogenous depression

Journal of Affective Disorders
J E De Wilde, D Doogan


Thirty patients were treated in a randomised double-blind efficacy study of fluvoxamine and chlorimipramine. The dose range for both drugs was 50-300 mg in divided daily doses. Mean daily doses were higher for fluvoxamine than chlorimipramine. Generally the baseline recordings were comparable for both drug groups. Fluvoxamine was superior to chlorimipramine in all the rating scales used without achieving statistical significance. Chlorimipramine, but not fluvoxamine, caused a significant decrease in blood pressure. There were no significant effects on ECG or laboratory variables. There was no significant relationship between plasma levels of either compound or metabolite and clinical response. Chlorimipramine exerted more unwanted effects than fluvoxamine. Autonomic effects of fluvoxamine were minimal in comparison with chlorimipramine. Chlorimipramine patients required more concurrent anxiolytic medication than fluvoxamine. Both drug groups required a significant amount of concurrent hypnotic medication.
