A sociodemographic and clinical picture is presented of 82 depressed subjects who had an unequivocal response or lack of response to treatment with amitriptyline or imipramine. Patients with less severe depressive illness were found more likely to respond to treatment, while those with psychotic features were more likely to be treatment resistant. Sociodemographic and other prior and current clinical course variables were not predictive of treatment response in depressed patients.
