Abstract

The discovery of antipsychotic medications has revolutionized the treatment of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. However, side effects such as extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS) and tardive dyskinesia have been limiting factors in treatment. The introduction of atypical drugs such as clozapine and risperidone has ushered in a new era. This article provides an overview of the pharmacology, efficacy, and techniques for the clinical use of risperidone, which has recently become available.
