CRP Predicts Response to Antidepressants

Posted by SLS on March 19, 2018, at 7:27:40

C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Predicts Response to Antidepressants.

CRP is a biomarker for systemic inflammation. Inflammation is associated with depression.

A few studies found that:

1. High CRP indicates a reduced rate of response to antidepressants.
2. High CRP predicts a better response to nortriptyline (Pamelor) than to escitalopram (Lexapro).
3. High CRP predicts a better response to SSRI + Wellbutrin than to SSRI monotherapy.

Has anyone used a CRP blood test to choose an antidepressant?

I would like to know how SNRIs rate with respect to CRP levels in comparison to SSRIs.
