Indication(s)

DENZAPINE is indicated in treatment-resistant schizophrenic patients and in schizophrenia patients who have severe, untreatable neurological adverse reactions to other antipsychotic agents, including atypical antipsychotics.

Treatment resistance is defined as a lack of satisfactory clinical improvement despite the use of adequate doses of at least two different antipsychotic agents, including an atypical antipsychotic agent, prescribed for adequate duration.

DENZAPINE is also indicated in psychotic disorders occurring during the course of Parkinson's disease, in cases where standard treatment has failed.
