VIDEO: Adjunctive treatment with cariprazine improved depression symptoms

NEW ORLEANS – Patients who received cariprazine in addition to their standard antidepressant showed clinical improvement for depression, Gary Sachs, MD, said at the American Psychiatric Association annual meeting.
“What we learned from this study is that instead of giving standard antidepressant after standard antidepressant, drugs like cariprazine have something to offer. They are a different class, maybe a broad spectrum psychotropic,” Sachs said.
