The Janssen Portfolio of Long-Acting Injections
Featuring INVEGA SUSTENNA® and INVEGA TRINZA®. Same active ingredient, different long-acting treatment options for adult patients with schizophrenia.
What long-acting treatments can offer
You didn’t choose to live with schizophrenia, but you have a choice in how you manage it. It’s important to talk with your healthcare professional and learn about all the treatment options available to you, like a long-term approach to treatment with either INVEGA SUSTENNA® (paliperidone palmitate) and INVEGA TRINZA® (paliperidone palmitate) from the Janssen portfolio of long-acting injections (LAIs).
Treatment with LAIs can help you feel confident that the medication you need is in your system for a month* or 3 months** with a single dose. LAIs can also help control schizophrenia symptoms in adults and help delay another episode.
In a pivotal long-term study, 90% of adult patients taking INVEGA SUSTENNA® did not experience a significant return of schizophrenia symptoms vs 66% of those not treated. In a separate pivotal long-term study, 93% of adult patients taking INVEGA TRINZA® did not experience a significant return of schizophrenia symptoms vs 77% of those not treated.
The Janssen portfolio of LAIs has 2 treatment options with the same active ingredient, both designed to be gradually released to help control schizophrenia symptoms and delay time to another relapse in adults. INVEGA SUSTENNA® is given every month after 2 starting doses, and INVEGA TRINZA® is given once every 3 months to patients after they have been adequately treated with INVEGA SUSTENNA® for at least 4 months.
