Answer

In patients who are at risk of depression or who develop depression during treatment, any antidepressant is better than none. Because available evidence suggests that all antidepressants will have an effect, Schaefer et al reported that treatment must be individualized on the basis of the adverse effect profile, drug-to-drug interactions, and general considerations (eg, speed of onset, efficacy).
