Will depression go away on its own?

Depression is different than just being sad. You can’t simply “snap out of it,” and if left untreated, it can last for months or years. In order to feel better, you need treatment so your doctor may prescribe VIIBRYD. Learn more >

What causes depression?

It is widely believed that depression results from a combination of genetic, biochemical, environmental, and psychological factors. If left untreated, it can last for years. Learn more >
In two 8-week studies, patients who used VIIBRYD experienced significant improvement in their symptoms of depression. VIIBRYD is the first drug of its kind approved by the FDA for treating depression in adults. While the exact way VIIBRYD—or any other medication for depression— works is unknown, it is thought to affect the activity of serotonin in the brain.

VIIBRYD is one possible treatment option. Talk to your doctor today to learn more about depression and if VIIBRYD is right for you.
