The Educational Dose Illustrator can be used to visualize how dosing affects paliperidone plasma concentrations following administration of INVEGA SUSTENNA® for:

  • the treatment of schizophrenia
  • the treatment of schizoaffective disorder as monotherapy and as an adjunct to mood stabilizers or antidepressants

This resource simulates the paliperidone plasma concentrations over time resulting from different dosing scenarios that are set forth in the INVEGA SUSTENNA® Prescribing Information. The Educational Dose Illustrator is intended to be used as a resource to foster a better understanding and educate healthcare professionals about the dosing recommendations provided in the INVEGA SUSTENNA® Prescribing Information. It is intended for educational purposes only.

It is not intended to influence prescribing practices. It is not intended to be used to determine patient prescribing, dosages, treatment, or dosing strategies. Because the simulated patient blood plasma levels of INVEGA SUSTENNA® shown in the dosing scenarios are based upon aggregated pharmacokinetic information from clinical studies, the simulations may not be representative of individual patient response.
