Abstract

The authors compared the effects of 6 weeks of imipramine treatment with 6 weeks of placebo treatment on social and vocational impairment in chronic depression. Imipramine was associated with significantly greater pre- to posttreatment improvement of social-vocational impairments in chronic depression, suggesting that these impairments may have represented affective symptoms rather than characterologic deficits.
