Long-acting injectable medications (LAIs) can streamline the pharmacotherapy for many patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Not only do they facilitate medication adherence, they also provide the most consistent serum levels of antipsychotic (and mood stabilizing) medication. They keep medication routines more manageable than oral medications allow. LAIs can provide convenience for patients who do not want to take daily medication, and can help patients who have difficulty maintaining a consistent daily medication regime.
