Hospitalization Risk in Bipolar Disorder Patients Treated with Lurasidone versus Other Atypical Antipsychotics.

CONCLUSIONS: In this claims database analysis, lurasidone-treated patients with bipolar disorder had a significantly lower risk of psychiatric hospitalization compared to quetiapine, olanzapine, and risperidone, but not aripiprazole or ziprasidone. Lurasidone-treated patients had a significantly lower risk of all-cause hospitalization compared to quetiapine, olanzapine, risperidone, and aripiprazole, but not ziprasidone.
