From the Indy Star

NEW YORK - The Food and Drug Administration has scheduled a meeting next month to review the safety and effectiveness of a long-acting version of Eli Lilly and Co.’s schizophrenia drug.

The agency’s panel of psychiatric drug advisers will meet Feb. 6 to assess Zyprexa Adhera, an injectable version of the company’s best-selling drug, which accounted for a quarter of Lilly’s sales last year.

FDA said it is particularly concerned about incidents of severe drowsiness among patients tested with the new formulation.
Zyprexa is currently available in pill form to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Sales grew 6 percent to $1.67 billion in the final quarter of last year.Shares of Lilly rose $1.03 to $55.57 in morning trading today
