Ameritox's Ingenuity Health Introduces Method to Help Assess Medication Adherence in Patients Prescribed Risperdal
Oct 21 14
Ameritox announced that it has launched a method to help assess medication adherence in behavioral health patients prescribed the antipsychotic drug risperidone (tradename, Risperdal). This new method marks a critical step toward establishing a comprehensive reference database for commonly prescribed antipsychotic medications, providing behavioral health clinicians help in addressing the acute problem of medication non-adherence in those with serious mental illness. The company’s Ingenuity Health service conducted research that allows it to provide additional information about whether a patient may be taking risperidone in accordance with his or her prescribed treatment plan. By comparing normalized urine drug results against the results of patients clinically assessed as adherent, behavioral health centers and medical professionals will have more information as they manage and treat patients prescribed risperidone. Risperidone now joins Abilify. In addition, Ingenuity Health offers detection tests for other drugs commonly prescribed to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, including Clozaril, Geodon, Haldol, Invega, Zyprexa and Latuda.
