FDA Approves Longer-Lasting Anti-Psychotic, Zyprexa

FDA regulators have approved a newly developed version of the anti-psychotic drug Zeprexa, this longer-lasting version will be manufactured by Eli Lilly & Co.

The Food and Drug Administration allowed for the distribution of Zyprexa Relprevv in the form of an injection. It will be used for the treatment of schizophrenia in adults and can last up to four weeks.

Eli Lilly & Co already distributes a top-selling pill-form of Zyprexa that is taken daily along with an injection of the drug that acts rapidly in the body to treat agitation.

This new version of the anti-psychotic will be given to patients either bi-weekly or monthly, depending on their level of dosage, announced spokeswoman Janell Smith.

Smith also added that this longer-lasting medication will make it simpler for patients to stay on medication while allowing doctors to monitor how each patient is doing.

Zyprexa has been Eli Lilly & Co’s most popular drug for several years and has made them around $4.7 billion in sales.
