Amisulpride is a second-generation antipsychotic, a substituted benzamide. It appears to be an effective agent in treating schizophrenia for what are characterised as positive and negative symptoms. The recommended doses are between 400 mg/day and 800 mg/day. Amisulpride demonstrates a good global safety profile, particularly when compared with first-generation antipsychotics, such as haloperidol. There are interesting studies that point towards amisulpride's antidepressant effect in dysthymia speculative on possible roles in affective psychoses and chronic fatigue syndrome.
