We present two cases of treatment-resistant depression that improved with recognition and correction of the underlying medical etiology of vitamin B-12 deficiency.

Supplementations of vitamin B-12 to the same antidepressant regimen that the patient had not responded earlier led to response.

Two male subjects who were vegetarians presented with long-standing histories of depression and had not responded to three adequate trials of antidepressants. Upon investigation, the authors found that the subjects had low vitamin B-12 levels. Both cases improved with supplementation of vitamin B-12.

Subjects with depression who do not respond to conventional antidepressants should be evaluated for nutritional factors.
