Active Comparator: ESC + CBX
Escitalopram 10 mg twice day plus Celecoxib 200 mg twice daily.
Drug: ESC + CBX
Escitalopram (ESC) 10 mg twice day given orally twice a day plus Celecoxib (CBX) 200 mg twice daily.
• Escitalopram 10 mg given twice day plus Celecoxib 200 mg twice daily.
Placebo Comparator: ESC + PBO.
Escitalopram 10 mg twice day plus placebo administered twice daily.
Drug: ESC + PBO.
• Escitalopram (ESC) 10 mg twice per day plus Placebo (PBO)administered twice daily.
- Improved affective responses [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]combined pharmacotherapy of ESC + CBX will result in earlier and/or improved affective responses compared to ESC + placebo measured by rating three levels of assessment of clinical improvement: (a) time of onset of mood response, (b) magnitude of mood response, and (c) prevalence and time point of symptom remission
- Safety profile of combined ESC/CBX therapy [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Determine whether combined pharmacotherapy of ESC + CBX poses safety or tolerability issues, particularly in terms of gastrointestinal bleeding or cardiovascular health over a 8-week course of treatment.
