What is Saphris?
Saphris (asenapine) is an antipsychotic drug prescribed for adults and children who are at least 10 years old. It is used for the treatment of acute bipolar mania and mixed bipolar episodes (depressive symptoms during a manic or hypomanic episode or a major depressive episode). It is also prescribed for adults with schizophrenia.
Saphris comes in tablet form for sublingual (beneath the tongue) administration, typically twice daily. It is not absorbed well when swallowed.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Untreated mental illness can destroy lives and tear families apart. When a certain medication like Saphris provides significant symptomatic relief, the patient must have access to an uninterrupted supply. This is crucial not only in terms of reducing symptoms, but also because suddenly discontinuing an antipsychotic drug can result in psychosis.
Far too many people with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia are uninsured or underinsured and have trouble paying for expensive antipsychotic medications. Simplefill is committed to helping those with any chronic condition, including mental illnesses, requiring ongoing treatment with expensive prescription drugs. We take pride in serving as a bridge between people who need prescription assistance and the programs that offer such help.
How does Saphris Work?
Saphris’ exact mechanism of action is unknown. It is a chemically altered derivative of a tetracyclic antidepressant and appears to stimulate the release of cortical dopamine, noradrenaline, and serotonin. These hormones are important for normal brain function and mental behavior.
