Current Treatments for Cognitive Impairment Associated with Schizophrenia

There are no FDA approved drugs for the treatment of CIAS. In research that we commissioned in November 2006, physicians consistently noted the large unmet treatment need given the lack of effective therapy options currently available for CIAS. Physician interviews conducted as part of the research revealed that a range of treatments for CIAS are tried including products approved for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease such as Aricept, Namenda, and Exelon, stimulants, such as Provigil and Ritalin, that are used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and antidepressants. Only 55% of the physicians interviewed in connection with our research have tried using pharmaceutical products approved for other uses to treat CIAS and of those prescribers, fewer than 10% of their patients are successfully treated.
