Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Safety assessments will include spontaneous adverse event (AE) and serious adverse events (SAEs) monitoring, clinical laboratory tests (hematology, clinical chemistry, and urinalysis), vital signs, weight, and concomitant medications.

    Investigators will evaluate the long-term effectiveness of lurasidone by utilizing the Clinical Global Impression-Severity (CGI-S) scale.

    Investigators will assess the potential for suicidal AEs (suicidal behavior and suicidal ideation) by utilizing the C-SSRS.
