Objective

This multicenter, multinational, crosssectional study aimed to investigate clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes associated with augmentation/combination treatment strategies in major depressive disorder (MDD).

Method

Sociodemographic, clinical, and treatment features of 1410 adult MDD patients were compared between MDD patients treated with monotherapy and augmentation/combination medication using descriptive statistics, analyses of covariance (ancova), and Spearman's correlation analyses.

Results

60.64% of all participants received augmentation and/or combination strategies with a mean number of 2.18 1.22 simultaneously prescribed psychiatric drugs. We found male gender, older age, Caucasian descent, higher weight, low educational status, absence of occupation, psychotic symptoms, melancholic and atypical features, suicide risk, inpatient treatment, longer duration of hospitalization, some psychiatric comorbidities (panic disorder, agoraphobia, obsessivecompulsive disorder, and bulimia nervosa), comorbid somatic comorbidity in general and concurrent hypertension, thyroid dysfunction, diabetes, and heart disease in particular, higher current and retrospective Montgomery and Åsberg Depression Rating Scale total scores, treatment resistance, and higher antidepressant dosing to be significantly associated with augmentation/combination treatment. These findings were corroborated when examining the number of concurrently administered psychiatric drugs in the statistical analyses.

Conclusion

Our findings suggest a clear association between augmentation/combination strategies and treatmentresistant/difficulttotreat MDD conditions characterized by severe symptomatology and high amount of psychiatric and somatic comorbidities.
