Abstract

Drug-induced depression is variable in its presentation with regard to the presence and characteristics of mood disturbance, anhedonia, and neurovegetative symptoms. Strategies for management include dosage tapering, drug discontinuation, switching to another drug less likely to cause depression, prescribing antidepressant medication, and referring the patient to a psychiatrist.
