Delusions of infestation treated with pimozide: a follow-up study.

Abstract

Fourteen patients with monosymptomatic delusions of infestation were followed-up 19-48 months after treatment with pimozide was terminated. Seven patients had remained in remission since the treatment. Three had developed relapses, but were without symptoms with intermittent treatment. Four patients responded poorly to pimozide and had still symptoms at the follow-up. The study indicates, that a large proportion of patients with monosymptomatic delusions of infestation treated with pimozide will be able to discontinue the medication for years without recurrence of their delusions.
