I think there is reason to believe that the longer a depressive episode lasts, the higher the probability of (more frequent, more severe) recurrence. This is supposed to apply with special force to the first occurrences. If this is true, and if ECT is the fastest acting treatment, then it seems irresponsible to not use it as THE first line treatment, especially in initial occurences.
Moreover, it might be much less expensive in the long run. Comments?
