When a depressive episode strikes due to Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), your world becomes a darker place. You experience symptoms such as low self-esteem, lack of energy, feelings of worthlessness, and diminished interest or pleasure in most activities.

To treat your MDD, you may take medications like Prozac®, Paxil®, Zoloft®, or Cymbalta®. These medications are known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), and are commonly used to treat people with MDD.

You may also take an additional medication with your SSRI or SNRI to help control your MDD. Yet, despite this current treatment plan, you continue to have MDD symptoms.

This research study is for people who are experiencing depressive episodes of MDD, despite ongoing treatment. In this study, doctors want to evaluate the safety, effectiveness, and patient satisfaction of an investigational drug that is taken with your current SSRI or SNRI.
