Full description

A patient with depression occurred within 3 month period after onset of confirmed COVID 19 infection who has already been recommended to initiate antidepressive treatment with agomelatine will be asked to provide a consent to participate in the study and in case of consent is positive the patient will be invited for 3 more visits starting from the date of the inclusion in the study according to clinical practice. Therefore clinical parameters needed for describing effectiveness and tolerability of agomelatine treatment will be prospectively collected at each of these visits. Antidepressive treatment of enrolled outpatients can be modified by investigating psychiatrist or neurologist at any time of the observation if required. Following visits are planned: Inclusion Visit 0 (V0) - inclusion in the study Follow up Visits 1-2 (V1-V2) - visits at week 2 and week 4 after V0. Final Visit 3 (V3) - visit at week 8 after V0.
