I saw my pdoc yesterday & he wanted to put me in a study for a new SSRI med. I didn't qualify due to my work schedule (no night work allowed due to some sort of sleeping chart) but he thinks that it looks promising. I glanced over the information, and it's a double-blind study of the new drug vs paxil vs placebo with a pool of about 400-500. It has a short-term assessment with an option to move into a longer one (a total of 14 months I believe). I'm not sure how far along a drug would have to be for this type of study, but unless I misunderstood the pdoc - it's a new med, not a revamp of an old one (I specifically asked if it was a newer Paxil since that's what they a comparing it with). I didn't write down the name (it began with an 'a'), but it wasn't one that I've seen before. I can probably find out at my next visit.

Has anyone heard of this?

Heard of the drug the study is referring to. My take was that it is new and unreleased.

Thanks for the link - I found an earlier trial for the drug!

It's Agomelatine.

I wonder how long it will be before the new "effexor" comes out? Something like desvenaflaxine?
