Author information

Central Institute of Mental Health, Mannheim, Federal Republic of Germany.


Eleven schizophrenics (7 females) displaying an acute psychotic episode received the partial dopamine agonist terguride in doses up to 2 mg per day. Improvement in terms of positive symptoms reduction was observed in two cases only. In contrast, in a previous clinical trial targeted at negative schizophrenic symptoms, the majority of the patients appeared to have benefited from terguride application.
