DESIGN Double-blind, randomized study. SETTING Outpatient or inpatient. PARTICIPANTS Adults with established (≥1 year) schizophrenia. Those assigned to risperidone(More)

BACKGROUND There are no previous reports of paliperidone palmitate's (PP) long term tolerability or pharmacokinetics of the highest dose in patients with schizophrenia. This study evaluates safety and tolerability, as well as pharmacokinetics, of the highest marketed dose of PP (150 mg eq. [234 mg]) in stable patients with schizophrenia over a 1-year(More)
