Suboptimal patient outcomes in major depressive disorder (MDD) result from shortcomings in assessment and treatment that fail to account for the diversity of its symptomology and the negative impact of potential treatment-emergent adverse effects. An increased understanding of the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying MDD has led to the emergence of novel antidepressants with diverse, multimodal mechanisms of action that may be more effective against cognitive symptoms while also mitigating the adverse effects commonly associated with treatment. In this session, Drs. Clayton and Maletic will describe the mechanisms of action and clinical data surrounding available and emerging MDD pharmacotherapies with respect to their associated adverse effect profiles and efficacy across symptom domains, as well as discuss how this information can be used to develop individualized therapeutic strategies for patients with MDD.

Supported by an educational grant from Takeda U.S.A., Inc. and Lundbeck.
