•    The purpose of the first Type II variation is to update the SmPC, section 4.8 and 5.1 to include clinically relevant information for the prescriber and patient describing vortioxetine’s superior (comparative) effect on treatment-emergent sexual dysfunction (TESD) based on the outcome of 2 prospective clinical studies (Studies 318 and 4001).

•    The purpose of the second Type II variation is to update the SmPC, section 4.4 and 5.2 to reflect the outcome of Study 401 that investigated PK, safety, and tolerability in subjects with severe hepatic impairment, as requested by the EMA during the Renewal assessment. In addition, adjustments are also proposed for renal impairment (although there is no new data on renal impairment) to align the wording between hepatic and renal impairment.
