Abstract

ABSTRACT
Introduction: Depression is one of the most common psychiatric conditions in the general population. Although many
effective treatment options are available for treatment of depression,5,6pharmacotherapy is the most commonly used
modality. The pharmacological agents used for treatment of depression found effective in one population with a particular
genetic make-up may not be as effective or become intolerable in another genetic stock. With the recent advances in
the pharmacogenetics, it is meaningful to ascertain how well do the medications work in the Indian context. Much of
the studies in relation to the treatment of depression have been conducted in the Western countries.
