The Role of Long-Acting Antipsychotics in the Management of Schizophrenia
December 13, 2017, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EST
The presentation will provide information about the problem of relapses for outcomes in people with schizophrenia, discussing the potential role and value of long-acting-injectable antipsychotics in the management of schizophrenia. Reasons for relapse and for failing to achieve remission and recovery will be outlined, including the relevance and frequency of non-adherence. Characteristics of different long-acting-injectable antipsychotics will be compared. Studies and meta-analyses comparing long-acting-injectable antipsychotics vs placebo and vs oral antipsychotics across different study designs will be critically reviewed. Adverse effects of long-acting-injectable antipsychotics and their potential for use early during the illness course will be examined. Finally, arguments for and against long-acting-injectable antipsychotics as well as ways to effectively present and offer long-acting-injectable antipsychotics to patients with schizophrenia will be described.
