Zypadhera: new depot injection for schizophrenia

Lilly has launched a prolonged-release olanzapine injection, Zypadhera.

The injection is available in three different strengths, 210mg, 300mg and 405mg, and is licensed for use in the maintenance treatment of adult patients with schizophrenia sufficiently stabilised during acute treatment with oral olanzapine.

Zypadhera should be administered only by deep intramuscular gluteal injection by a healthcare professional trained in the appropriate injection technique and in locations where post-injection observation and access to appropriate medical care in the case of overdose can be assured.
