Clinical Trial 46442

Sarasota, FL 34243


If you are living with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), you already know that it is more than just a sad feeling. MDD is a disorder that can cause symptoms such as a continuous low mood, feelings of hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities that are usually enjoyed. Although there are treatment options available, these treatments are not effective for all patients and often have side effects that can cause people to stop taking them. Many current MDD medications do not adequately address lost interest in previously pleasurable activities.

What is the purpose of this research study?
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the investigational drug in people who have Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). This study will also assess the effect that the investigational drug has on the ability to feel pleasure or happiness in people with MDD.
