May 3, 2016

Brintellix, a vortioxetine product approved to treat major depressive disorder in adults, will be marketed in the United States under a new name, Trintellix, starting in June 2016, according to a company press release.

The name change was prompted by reports of name confusion in the marketplace between Brintellix (vortioxetine, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc.) and the anti-blood clotting therapy Brilinta (ticagrelor, AstraZeneca).
