MARKET OUTLOOK 
MDD is a highly drug-treated condition that utilizes an array of drug classes, including, but not limited to, SSRI , SNRI s, and—as adjunctive therapies—atypical antipsychotics. Even though the MDD drug market is highly entrenched with generic therapies, MDD patients’ heterogeneous response to antidepressants and/or atypical antipsychotics afford branded drugs (, Trintellix [Lundbeck/Takeda], Rexulti [Otsuka Pharmaceuticals/Lundbeck]) the opportunity to be introduced into the treatment paradigm, often as later-line therapies. Given MDD ’s highly crowded and competitive landscape, it is valuable for drug marketers and developers to understand how MDD patients are being treated using claims data.
