Once-monthly aripiprazole and paliperidone comparison
What is it about?
Aripiprazole and paliperidone once-monthly formulations were equally effective in reducing psychosis in patients with comorbid psychosis and substance use disorder, but aripiprazole reduced craving and improved quality of life more than paliperidone.
Why is it important?
In cases of comorbidity with substance use disorders, patients with psychosis fare better on craving and quality of life on aripiprazole once-monthly; hence, the latter should be preferred in such cases.
