Try to Continue Asenapine or Lumateperone on Admission
Patients may be on new atypical antipsychotics...asenapine (Secuado, seh-KWAH-doh) or lumateperone (Caplyta, kah-PLY-tah).
There are now over a dozen of these second-generation options...with varying activity at receptors (dopamine, serotonin, etc). But efficacy seems similar.
If patients are on an asenapine patch or lumateperone at home for schizophrenia, try to continue it on admission.
