Mechanism of Action
Lurasidone is an atypical antipsychotic that is a D2 and 5-HT2A (mixed serotonin and dopamine activity) to improve cognition. It is thought that antagonism of serotonin receptors can improve negative symptoms of psychoses and reduce the extrapyramidal side effects that are often associated with typical antipsychotics.
- Lurasidone is readily absorbed and quickly reaches maximal concentrations (Cmax) within 1-4 hours. When taken with food, there is a two-fold increase in exposure and time to maximal concentration is increased by 0.5-1.5 hours. This occurs regardless of fat or caloric content. Bioavailability = 9-19%.

- Lurasidone is metabolized by CYP3A4 in which its major active metabolite is referred to as ID-14283 (25% of parent exposure). Its two minor metabolites are referred to as ID14326 and ID11614 which make up 3% and 1% of parent exposure respectively. Its two non-active metabolites are referred to as ID-20219 and ID-20220.
