Saphris (SA-fris), a new antipsychotic

You'll see orders for Saphris (SA-fris), a new antipsychotic.

Think of Saphris (asenapine) as similar to Zyprexa, Abilify, Risperdal, etc for schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

It works about the same...seems fairly well tolerated...and has fewer drug interactions than most of the other antipsychotics.
