hi. this is interesting (to me...). wiki says they're doing studies w/ people diagnosed w/ Schizophrenia, w/ the new drug used alongside a tranquilizer. They're also looking into treatment of agitation and some forms of depression, also.

I don't know. the wiki page says one study used low dose risperidone w/ this drug and got good results. it also seems to reduce adverse effects from Haldol, so...that's incredible (to me...), all on its own.

there isn't any information on the adverse effects on the wiki page. as much as I'd love to jump for joy...remember: it wasn't until the 70s and 80s that the adverse effects from the 1st generation neuroleptics were taken seriously by psychiatrists, and then largely because of litigation and bad publicity.

ok. hopefully, someone else will do more thorough research on this new drug and post something.
