Abstract

There are very divergent appraisals of the effect of antidepressants on thyroid parameters and their possible correlation with the response. Whereas there are numerous investigations of tricyclic antidepressants, so far, there are only limited data on the possible effect of serotonin-selective reuptake inhibitors on neuroendocrine parameters. The present study showed a significant reduction of 11. 2% in thyroxine during treatment with 20 mg paroxetine in 25 severely depressed patients.
