Current findings, which are based on post-hoc analyses, are consistent with independent research, suggesting drug effect seems to occur during the first two weeks of treatment(vii).

Patients can also experience negative symptoms - such as diminished emotion, general lack of interest and depressive signs and symptoms - that are often more difficult to treat than positive symptoms(x). More than two million American adults have schizophrenia(xi), and more than 100,000 new cases are reported each year. The World Health Organization estimates the annual cost of schizophrenia at $65 billion, including direct costs and lost productivity(xii).
