Treat PPD with ZULRESSO

There are several systems in the brain that may play a defining role in the development of postpartum depression (PPD), including GABA*. The GABA system helps networks in the brain communicate with each other to regulate mood.

While the exact way ZULRESSO (brexanolone) works is not fully understood, ZULRESSO is believed to interact with the GABA system. This may help treat the symptoms of PPD.

Ask your doctor if ZULRESSO may be right for you.
