Members don't see this ad.
I haven't yet. They won't let me use it in child for obvious reasons, but I figure I'll give it a try when I hit full-time outpatient in April.

For those who've used it (it might be early to tell), have you found the QD dosing remain with enough efficacy during the evening/night hours (assuming you dose it qam)?

If this takes off, we might see this conversion to OROS delivery as a standard for drugs reaching expiring paTENTS.

Well I've sat through the drug dinner lecture presentation of it. Seems like its a safer version of Risperdal.

However I haven't prescribed it yet. They don't have it yet on the hospital formulary.

Anyways, despite that I hot sync often, my epocrates for some reason doesn't yet have it on the formulary.
