Abstract

The treatment of depression with psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy is one of the best-studied areas, yet much controversy exists about the relative merits of these treatments, singly and in combination. The author suggests that a combination of these therapies is not routinely indicated for uncomplicated major depressive disorder and provides some examples in which combined therapy can have a profound and cost-effective impact.
