Mutsatsa, S. (2017). The use of long acting injectable antipsychotic medication. British Journal of Mental Health Nursing, 6(3), pp. 114-117. doi: 10.12968/bjmh.2017.6.3.114

Abstract

Evidence supports the use of long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotics in the treatment and prevention psychosis, but these formulations remain under-used in the UK. Overall, LAIs offer many advantages and the advent of second-generation LAIs increased interest in injectables as these newer drugs offer similar benefits to their oral equivalents. LAIs should be one of the options discussed with patients requiring long-term treatment.
