Findings of the Comparative Effectiveness Review: Insufficient Evidence

Evidence is insufficient to evaluate the comparative effectiveness or adverse effects between the following comparators:

  • ECT versus sham treatment
  • rTMS + pharmacotherapy versus pharmacotherapy alone or sham treatment
  • Psychotherapy versus control treatment or pharmacotherapy

These results do not suggest that ECT and psychotherapy are ineffective treatments for TRD but merely that data are lacking for these comparisons within the population requirements used for the systematic review.
