New Antipsychotics No Better Than Older Drugs

A new study has discovered two newer atypical antipsychotic medications were no more effective than an older conventional antipsychotic in treating child and adolescent schizophrenia and may lead to more metabolic side effects.

The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and is published online ahead of print in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
