I think in general there is no evidence to suggest that ECT can make depression worse.

If, however, you fail ECT, many people seem to think that their options are extinguished and that type of thinking may make depression worse.

But, if ECT fails by itself then it is quite possible that medications may work better. ECT can resensitize certain receptors which may make AD's work better.
