Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. MADRS Total Score Change From Baseline to Week 6 [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS): The MADRS is a 10-item scale for the evaluation of depressive symptoms (Montgomery et al 1979). Each MADRS item is rated on a 0 to 6 scale. Total score range from 0-60, where higher MADRS scores indicate higher levels of depressive symptoms.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. MADRS Response [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    A MADRS responder at week 6 is defined as a patient with a reduction of at least 50% from baseline MADRS total score.

  2. MADRS Remission [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    A patient will be classified as in remission if their MADRS total score is ≤10 at Week 6
