Key Market Trends

Antipsychotic Drugs are Expected to be Fastest Growing Segment Over the Forecast Period

Antipsychotic medications are used as a short-term treatment for bipolar disorder to control psychotic symptoms, such as hallucinations, delusions, or mania symptoms. These symptoms may occur during acute mania or severe depression. Some also treat bipolar depression, and several have demonstrated long-term value in preventing future episodes of mania or depression. In people with bipolar disorder, antipsychotics are also used "off label" as sedatives, for insomnia, for anxiety, and/or for agitation. Often, they are taken with a mood-stabilizing drug and can decrease the symptoms of mania until mood stabilizers take full effect. Some antipsychotics seem to help stabilize moods on their own. As a result, they may be used alone as a long-term treatment for people who do not tolerate or respond to lithium and anticonvulsants. A few antipsychotic drugs include aripiprazole (Abilify), asenapine (Saphris), cariprazine (Vraylar), clozapine (Clozaril), lurasidone (Latuda), olanzapine (Zyprexa), quetiapine (Seroquel), risperidone (Risperdal), and ziprasidone (Geodon).
