  • Note: The safest way to switch to a long acting formulation, is to first switch to an oral formulation of the drug. If a patient develops an adverse effect/allergic reactions to the drug, this effect will persist for a relatively long time if given a long acting formulation. On the other hand, the low adherence of a patient might be a reason not to switch to an oral formulation.
