|Filing Date:||Apr 01, 2014|
|Claims:||1. A method of treating cognitive impairment involving decline in speed of processing, executive function, attention, or verbal learning and memory in a patient diagnosed with depression, the method comprising: administering a therapeutically effective amount of Compound I or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof to the patient, wherein Compound I is 1-[2-(2,4-dimethylphenylsulfanyl)-phenyl]piperazine, Compound I or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof is crystalline and is administered at a daily dose of 1-20 mg, and the method alleviates a symptom or complication of the cognitive impairment or delays the progression of the cognitive impairment. |
2. The method of claim 1, wherein Compound I or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof is a hydrobromide salt of 1-[2-(2,4-dimethylphenylsulfanyl)-phenyl]piperazine.
