Comparative effectiveness of antidepressants on geriatric depression: Real-world evidence from a population-based study
"During the study period, a total of 207,946 elderly patients with depression received one of the following 11 antidepressants: sertraline, fluoxetine, paroxetine, escitalopram, citalopram, fluvoxamine, venlafaxine, duloxetine, moclobemide, mirtazapine, and bupropion. Compared to the patients treated with sertraline, those treated with fluvoxamine / venlafaxine had significantly but modestly higher risks of switching (aHR [95% CI]: 1.16 [1.11-1.21] / 1.10 [1.06-1.14]), augmentation (1.06 [1.02-1.10] / 1.08 [1.05-1.12]), and hospitalization (1.28 [1.03-1.58] / 1.37 [1.16-1.62]). Otherwise, the remaining 9 antidepressants yielded no consistent result in the three outcomes."
