new antipsychotics on the Canadian market
You'll see new antipsychotics on the Canadian market.
Invega (paliperidone) is an atypical antipsychotic for schizophrenia. It's the active metabolite of risperidone (Risperdal).
Invega is dosed once daily, and does NOT require initial dose titration like risperidone. It also doesn't have as many drug interactions because it's not extensively metabolized by the liver.
