ABSTRACT:
Non-suppression Of Post-dexamethasone Cortisol Is A
Feature Of Endogenous/melancholic Depression.
Normalization Of The Dexamethasone Suppresion Test
(DST) Response Is A Feature Of Remission And
Antidepressant Treatment. Twelve Consecutive Depressed
Non-suppressers Were Treated With Rapid Transcranial
Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS). Six Demonstrated
Normalization And Good Clinical Improvement Which Was
Sustained For At Least 1 Month. Thus, RTMS Has Some
Biological Effects In Common With Other Antidepressant
Treatments.
