Healthy Living: Treatment-Resistant Depression

More than 16 million Americans suffered at least one major episode of depression just in the last year, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.

Medications aren’t always effective. In fact, 30 percent of patients don’t respond.

In Healthy Living, we show you how doctors across the country are now testing a drug combination for patients with drug-resistant depression.

All patients in the trial will get bupropion for six weeks.

Some will then be switched to AXS05; the rest will stay on bupropion.

The trial is running at 47 sites.
