OBJECTIVE Major depressive disorder is associated with increased cardiac mortality. A decrease in vagal modulation related to reduced heart rate variability might contribute to increased mortality among many other factors. We sought to examine the hypothesis that nortriptyline treatment will be associated with a decrease in heart rate variability and coupling between heart rate and respiration compared to treatment with S-citalopram. METHODS Fifty-two patients suffering from major depression… CONTINUE READING
