Fava et al., Am. J. Psychiatry 150 (1993)1158-1163, have recently proposed the existence of a sub-type of depressed patients who experience anger attacks. These investigators hypothesized that patients who experience anger attacks will respond better to a specific selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) medication than will depressed patients who do not experience anger attacks. Using a non-randomized, archival treatment methodology, 158 patients were classified as either high angry hostile (n = 83) or low angry hostile (n = 75). These patients had been treated with either a primarily noradrenergic reuptake inhibitor (desipramine) a SSRI (sertraline or paroxetine), or the combined serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI), venlafaxine. A 2 (high angry hostile/low angry hostile) x 3 (medication type) analysis of variance (ANOVA) was non-significant, indicating no differential treatment effects.
