VIDEO: Expert discusses label change for Trintellix
NEW YORK — Gregory Mattingly, MD, psychiatrist and associate clinical professor at Washington University School of Medicine, spoke with Healio Psychiatry at the American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting about cognition in relation to mood disorders.
He discussed a landmark label update for Trintellix (vortioxetine; Takeda, H. Lundbeck) that now includes information on the cognitive aspects for treating patients with mood disorders, particularly depression. Specifically, the updated label addresses not just depressive symptoms, but also processing speed, which plays a vital role in cognition.
