Data Highlight Physician and Payer Receptivity to Emerging Agents for Treatment-Resistant Depression, According to Findings from Decision Resources Group
BURLINGTON, Mass., June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources Group finds that surveyed U.S. psychiatrists are receptive to novel adjunctive therapies to antidepressants for treatment-resistant depression (TRD) and would prescribe Otsuka/Lundbeck's emerging atypical antipsychotic brexpiprazole to a mean 12 percent of their drug-treated TRD patients in 2015. This value is slightly lower than the 16 percent patient share surveyed psychiatrists currently estimate for Bristol-Myers Squibb/Otsuka's Abilify. Additionally, nearly one-third of surveyed psychiatrists willing to prescribe brexpiprazole would be most compelled to switch their TRD patients from adjunctive treatment with Abilify if brexpiprazole offered a lower risk of restlessness and/or akathisia (restless movements, inner restlessness and distress) compared to Abilify.
