When depression symptoms are not adequately relieved with current treatments, it is sometimes said that these are symptoms of "treatment-resistant depression."
All participants enrolled in this study will first receive an FDA approved antidepressant for a period of six weeks. Then, if eligible, the participants will be assigned to one of two groups. One group will begin taking the investigational drug, and the other group will continue taking the approved antidepressant. This part of the study will continue for another six weeks. the chance of begin assigned to either group is 50%, like flipping a coin.
