Abstract

18 hospitalized male depressives were treated with imipramine hydrochloride for 28 days. Prior to initiating treatment, each patient completed the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). At the end of the treatment period, the patients were divided into groups of responders and nonresponders based on the change in their Hamilton Depression Rating Scale scores. The Imipramine Response Scale - Male (IRS-M) was scored for each patient and the ability of the scale to predict response or nonresponse in our sample of patients was examined. There was no evidence that the IRS-M was better than chance in its ability to predict response.
