Is Nuplazid Only Available In America?

Is Nuplazid Only Available In America?

My mother has started hallucinating terribly. Her neurologist has ruled out UTI and other possible causes. She lives in England and I was wondering if Nuplazid is available there or in South Africa. Also can anyone tell me how much it costs if I was to pay for it as my mother is not resident in America and has no coverage. Thank you.

Unfortunately, she has these psychotic episodes every few… read more
