The main focus of this thesis was to establish the best pharmacological treatment for unipolar psychotic depression. In a randomized double-blind multi-center trial (RCT) in patients with a psychotic depression (N = 122) we compared the antidepressants imipramine and venlafaxine with a combination of an antidepressant and an antipsychotic (venlafaxine plus quetiapine). For the first time there is evidence that a psychotic depression should be treated with the combination of an antidepressant and an antipsychotic (venlafaxine plus quetiapine) and not with an antidepressant alone (venlafaxine).
