Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline on Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Total Score at End of Double-blind Treatment (End of Week 6). [ Time Frame: Baseline to end of Week 6 ]
    The MADRS is a clinician-rated scale to assess depressive symptomatology during the preceding week. Participants are rated on 10 items (feelings of sadness, lassitude, pessimism, inner tension, suicidality, reduced sleep or appetite, difficulty concentrating, and a lack of interest) each on a 7-point scale from 0 (no symptoms) to 6 (symptoms of maximum severity). The total score ranges from 0 to 60 with a higher score indicating more depression. A negative change score indicates improvement.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in MADRS Total Score at 1 Day After First Dose of Treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline to 1 Day post-first dose ]
    The MADRS is a clinician-rated scale to assess depressive symptomatology during the preceding week. Participants are rated on 10 items (feelings of sadness, lassitude, pessimism, inner tension, suicidality, reduced sleep or appetite, difficulty concentrating, and a lack of interest) each on a 7-point scale from 0 (no symptoms) to 6 (symptoms of maximum severity). The total score ranges from 0 to 60 with a higher score indicating more depression. A negative change score indicates improvement.
