The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of cariprazine as an adjunctive treatment to antidepressant therapy (ADT) in patients with MDD who have had an inadequate response to antidepressants alone

A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of Cariprazine as an Adjunct to Antidepressants in the Treatment of Patients With Major Depressive Disorder Who Have Had an Inadequate Response to Antidepressants Alone

  • Patient demonstrates ability to follow study instructions and likely to complete all required visits
  • Patient must have an inadequate response, as measured by the modified ATRQ, to 1 to 3 antidepressants administered during the current episode at an adequate dose (as per package insert) and for at least 6 weeks duration, with at least one dose escalation during the current depressive episode.
  • Only one antidepressant (of sufficient dose per package insert and taken for at least 6 weeks) will be allowed at randomization and patients must agree to continue taking the same ADT dosing regimen through completion of Visit 6/ET. Patients who are taking more than one antidepressant at Screening, regardless of the indication, will need to discontinue all other antidepressants prior to Visit 2 (Baseline).
