INVEGA TRINZA, First and Only Four-Times-A-Year Treatment for Schizophrenia, Now Commercially Available

The first schizophrenia treatment to be taken just four times a year – with dosing measured in seasons, not days – is now available in the United States. The three-month dosing interval of INVEGA TRINZA (paliperidone palmitate) offers a new paradigm for treating patients with schizophrenia. With this newly available treatment option, healthcare providers can give patients greater independence by enabling them to focus less on taking their medication and more on other aspects of their treatment plan.

INVEGA TRINZA, an atypical antipsychotic injection, is administered just four times a year, providing the longest dosing interval available for people living with schizophrenia. Before starting INVEGA TRINZA, patients must be adequately treated with INVEGA SUSTENNA (one-month paliperidone palmitate) for at least four months, according to Johnson & Johnson.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved INVEGA TRINZA under Priority Review. This designation is for drugs that, if approved, would offer significant improvement in the treatment of serious conditions.

“In the Phase 3 clinical trial, 93 percent of patients treated with INVEGA TRINZA remained relapse-free and did not experience a significant return of schizophrenia symptoms in a long-term maintenance trial.”

Invega is getting a lot of good press right now. I don’t actually know anyone personally who’s using it yet, though.

This is just a press release (a document a company publishes with the hope that people read it) - so take it with a grain or more of salt. The only real valuable information that was in here was that its available, and might be helpful to some people (or worth a try).

Don’t mistake a story pushed out by the company with a genuine press story (though the two have kind of merged now with the demise of critical thinking and real journalism.

If you knew how you were singing to the choir… (hahahahaha)
