CADTH recommendation to not reimburse new treatment a failure for people living with schizophrenia

Schizophrenia Society of Canada

Vraylar is the only approved treatment for adults with schizophrenia that has also been shown to improve predominant negative symptoms and functioning – which clinical experts consulted by CADTH confirmed as an area of unmet need.
