Lurasidone Pharmacology

On this podcast episode, I discuss lurasidone pharmacology, adverse effects, and drug interactions.

CYP3A4 is an important enzyme in the breakdown of lurasidone. I discuss this further on this episode.

Lurasidone is best taken with food as this enhances absorption and helps improve drug concentrations.

Lurasidone tends to have a lower risk for metabolic syndrome compared to other antipsychotics which is a nice advantage.
