Abstract

A patient with recurrent episodes of major depression with psychotic features was treated successfully with carbamazepine after unsatisfactory response to other interventions. Since psychotic depression is often difficult to treat with medications, carbamazepine may be a useful addition to the clinician's pharmacological armamentarium.
