Which antidepressants have demonstrated superior efficacy? A review
of the evidence - Int Clin Psychopharmacol. 2007
Nov;22(6):323-329 - "Criteria were defined
to judge the strength of evidence. Two pivotal studies in
moderate-to-severe major depressive disorder that demonstrate
superiority on the primary efficacy measure, or alternatively one
pivotal study supported by consistent results from meta-analyses,
was considered to constitute evidence for definite superiority.
Three antidepressants met these criteria: clomipramine, venlafaxine,
and escitalopram. Three antidepressants were found to have probable
superiority: milnacipran, duloxetine, and mirtazapine. Only
escitalopram was found to have definite superiority in the treatment
of severe depression; probable superiority was identified for
venlafaxine and possible superiority for milnacipran and clomipra"
