Abstract

The Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D) study evaluated feasible treatment strategies to improve clinical outcomes for real-world patients with treatment-resistant depression. Although the study found no clear-cut "winner", it does provide guidance on how to start therapy and how to proceed if initial treatment fails.
