OBJECTIVE: This study compared the acute phase (12-week) efficacy of fluoxetine versus placebo for the treatment of the depressive symptoms and the drinking of adolescents with comorbid major depression (MDD) and an alcohol use disorder (AUD). We hypothesized that fluoxetine would demonstrate efficacy versus placebo for the treatment of both the depressive symptoms and the drinking of comorbid MDD/AUD adolescents. METHODS: We conducted the first double-blind placebo-controlled study of fluoxetine in adolescents with comorbid MDD/AUD. All participants in both treatment groups also received intensive manual-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET). RESULTS: Fluoxetine was well tolerated in this treatment population. No significant group-by-time interactions were noted for any depression-related or drinking-related outcome variable. Subjects in both the fluoxetine group and the placebo group showed significant within-group improvement in both depressive symptoms and level of alcohol consumption. End-of-study levels of depression and drinking were low in both treatment groups. CONCLUSIONS: The lack of a significant between-group difference in depressive symptoms and in drinking may reflect limited medication efficacy, or may result from limited sample size or from efficacy of the CBT/MET psychotherapy. Large multi-site studies are warranted to further clarify the efficacy of SSRI medications in this adolescent MDD/AUD population.
