Abstract

Depression, in old age and in long-term care, can be difficult to treat when accompanied by central nervous system disease and the vulnerability of frail elders to adverse effects and drug interactions. The author discusses which treatment options are most effective in which patient, including combined therapy, and compares older and newer medications in the treatment of depression.
