Differences in response to psychopharmacologic agents according to race has so far primarily focused on investigations related to the response of Asian-American patients to neuroleptics and lithium. In this article, we present evidence which depicts that black patients need lower doses of tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) than white patients to attain a similar response in the treatment of major depression. Likewise, we also advance that black patients might need lower doses of selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor antidepressants (SSRIs) than white patients to attain a similar response in the treatment of major depression. Further studies are suggested to confirm these findings.
