This study controls for severity and presence of psychosis, and the authors are not aware of another study that has examined this issue using more appropriate methodology. Since depression is a major public health problem and treatment alternatives involve major costs and risks, further research on effects of age and other TCA (tricyclic antidepressant) response predictor variables is warranted.
