Product Theater The Role of Antipsychotic TDM in Clinical Decision Making: The Example of Clozapine Supported by Saladax
Activity Date: 04/25/2022
Session Time and Location
The live session is complete.
Readily available therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) of antipsychotic blood levels can provide evidenced-based and personalized psychopharmacologic treatment. Clozapine is the only evidence-based antipsychotic option for treatment resistant schizophrenia and schizophrenia patients with suicidality, with a wealth of data on plasma level response thresholds and the point of futility. For medications such as clozapine, patients and healthcare providers have many situations where TDM is highly relevant in making day-to-day clinical decisions, including differentiating poor adherence with ultrarapid metabolism, and optimizing levels in inadequate responders. During this session, the faculty will discuss the unique place of clozapine for treatment resistant schizophrenia, and the role of TDM in clozapine dosing during titration, and for monitoring ongoing adherence. An open microphone session will follow the presentations.
