Abstract

This work deals with the results of a clinical experience with viloxazine (VLZ) carried out on 43 depressed subjects of the female sex categorized with D.S.M. III criteria. Clinical ratings were made by means of the Hamilton Scale for depression and the Taylor self rating scale for anxiety. The results prove the efficacy of the drug in all the examined patients, along with the rapidity of effects in comparison with the tricyclic antidepressants. The elderly patients improved better than the adult subjects, especially when the depression was of the inhibited type.
