Experience gained at the Crisis Intervention Clinic of the Cornell Program in Social Psychiatry has shown the value of chemotherapy as part of an overall approach to treating potentially suicidal patients. This double blind study demonstrated that doxepin was therapeutically comparable to amitriptyline and that both drugs were significantly better than placebo in the treatment of neurotic depression among adult outpatients attending the clinic.
