Abstract

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study the authors found that fluoxetine, a potent and selective inhibitor of serotonin reuptake, was an effective antidepressant in moderately depressed, ambulatory outpatients. Typical adverse effects reported by patients treated with fluoxetine included agitation, nausea, fatigue, and insomnia. Compared to imipramine, fluoxetine was associated with fewer complaints of dry mouth, constipation, and dizziness.
