Milnacipran: recent findings in depression

Milnacipran is a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) which was first approved for the treatment of major depressive episodes in France in December 1996. It is currently marketed for this indication (as Ixel®, Toledomin®, Tivanyl® or Dalcipran®) in over 45 countries worldwide including Japan. It was approved for the management of fibromyalgia in the US in 2009.

This supplement, which is based on a symposium at the International Forum on Mood and Anxiety (IFMAD) held in Monaco in November 2009, highlights several recent clinical studies with milnacipran in depression.
