Show Summary Details


This report summarizes the recommendations from a consensus meeting that focused on specific questions regarding the pharmacotherapy of schizophrenia. The issues were selected because there was evidence that experts had recently disagreed about the evidence supporting a particular practice or when there were substantial variations in a clinical practice indicating that there was disagreement among clinicians. The group of experts was able to reach a consensus regarding the evidence base pertaining to the following issues: First generation (FGAs) and second generation (SGAs) antipsychotics as first line agents; the duration of antipsychotic trials; the effectiveness of clozapine and other agents for treatment refractory schizophrenia; risk of tardive dyskinesia on FGAs and SGAs; differences among antipsychotics for different dimensions of psychopathology; and side effect monitoring for various antipsychotics.

Keywords: Schizophrenia; antipsychotics; tardive dyskinesia; evidence-based practice; clozapine
