Aripiprazole/sertraline (developmental code name ASC-01) is a combination formulation of aripiprazole (Abilify), an atypical antipsychotic, and sertraline (Zoloft), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), which is under development by Otsuka Pharmaceutical for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD).[1] It combines serotonin reuptake inhibition from sertraline and modulation of dopamine and serotonin receptors from aripiprazole.[1] In July 2017, it was in preregistration in Japan for the treatment of MDD.[1]
