The study will be conducted in the USA and in Europe and will include paediatric patients diagnosed with depressive or anxiety disorders of two age populations; children aged 7-11 years and adolescents of the age 12-17 years. It is an open study to allow pharmacokinetic (PK) sampling of all patients, and four dose levels will be tested. Following lower initial doses the patients will be treated daily at the assigned dose levels for 14 days, and it is expected that patients may benefit from treatment during this period.
