Abstract

Clozapine is the most widely used antipsychotic drug for the treatment of refractory schizophrenia. Here we report the case of two residual schizophrenic patients refractory to conventional antipsychotics who showed a poor response to atypical antipsychotics. The combination of risperidone and clozapine produced a noticeable improvement in the patients' clinical status and a shortening of the treatment response latency.
