Redeptin - General Information

A long-acting injectable antipsychotic agent used for chronic schizophrenia.


Pharmacology of Redeptin

Redeptin is a relatively long-acting injectable depot antipsychotic drug used for schizophrenia. Redeptin does not differ greatly from other depot antipsychotics (fluphenazine decanoate, fluphenazine enathate, perphenazine onanthat, pipotiazine undecylenate) with respect to treatment efficacy, response or tolerability. Outcomes suggest that fluspirilene does not differ significantly from oral antipsychotics or in different weekly regimens, although much cannot be inferred because of the shortage of trials.
