About This Study
This study is intended to assess the effectiveness of AXS-05 compared to bupropion in preventing relapse of depressive symptoms in people who have responded to treatment with AXS-05. AXS-05 is not approved for the prevention of relapse and its use in this study is investigational
The study will last up to 41 weeks, consisting of an up to 4-week screening period, a 10-week open-label period where you will receive AXS-05, a 26-week randomization period where you will have a 50/50 chance of receiving AXS-05 or bupropion and a 1-week follow up. Qualified participants will receive study-related care and investigational medication at no cost. Your depression and overall health will be monitored by a team of healthcare professionals and study staff. Compensation for your time and travel may be available.
