Depression affects many lives
Are you feeling better but not where you want to be and still experiencing depressive symptoms like fatigue, sadness, and loss of interest in your favorite activities?
You have plenty of company. Major depressive disorder (MDD) affects nearly 15 million American adults in a given year. And for some of these people, current antidepressants provide limited relief from their symptoms.
Because depression impacts so many lives and is difficult to manage, researchers are working to develop new medications that may improve depression symptoms in the future.
Researching new options for depression
Clinical research doctors are currently enrolling people with depression who are taking an antidepressant for a research study. This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and effectiveness of an investigational medication for depression symptoms.
If you haven't been able to get relief from your symptoms, you may be eligible to participate in this study. If you qualify, you may receive investigational study drugs, coverage for your current prescription antidepressant, study-related care at no cost, and compensation for your time and travel.
