Schizophrenia is a psychiatric disease that usually requires long-term treatment. The primary goals of treatment are to reduce the frequency and severity of psychotic episodes, maintain the reduction in these symptoms over the long term, and improve patients’ functional capacity. Schizophrenia is a highly drug-treated condition that uses an array of antipsychotic medications, including atypical and typical antipsychotic drugs, resulting in a complex treatment algorithm. Although the drug market is entrenched with generic therapies, the need for longer-acting, more-effective, and more-tolerable drugs gives branded agents (e.g., Janssen’s Invega Trinza, Intra-Cellular Therapies’ Caplyta, Indivior’s Perseris, AbbVie’s Vraylar) the opportunity to be incorporated into the treatment algorithm. As such, understanding the treatment dynamics, with the presence of both long-established and newer-to-market branded drugs, will be crucial for drug developers and marketers of in-line products to understand physicians’ prescribing behavior in schizophrenia.
