Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lu AF35700 oral solution (1 mg/mL)
Planned daily doses range from 5 mg/day to 30 mg/day for 3 weeks. Weekly doses up to 75 mg/week for 3 weeks.
Drug: Lu AF35700
Placebo Comparator: Matching placebo
Oral solution
Drug: Placebo

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absolute values and change from baseline in safety variables (Adverse events, clinical safety laboratory tets, vital signs, weight, and ECG) [ Time Frame: Screening to day 78 (up to 8 weeks after last dose) ]
  2. Change from baseline in AIMS, BARS and SAS Total score [ Time Frame: Baseline to day 21 ]
    Abnormal movement rating scale

  3. Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) [ Time Frame: Sceening to day 78 (up to 8 weeks after last dose) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Day 21 area under the Lu AF35700 and Lu AF36152 plasma concentration-time curve from 0-24 hours post dose (AUC0-tau) in a daily dosing regime [ Time Frame: Day 21 in the dosing period ]
  2. Maximum observed concentration (Cmax) of Lu AF35700 and Lu AF36152 [ Time Frame: Day 1 and 21 in the dosing period ]
  3. Half-lives (t½) of Lu AF35700 and Lu AF36152 [ Time Frame: Day 1 and 21 in the dosing period ]
  4. Day 14-21 area under the Lu AF35700 and LuAF36152 plasma-concentration-time curve from 0-168 hours post-dose (AUCtau) in a weekly dosing regimen [ Time Frame: Day 14-21 in the dosing period ]
