ILOPERIDONE: NEWER ATYPICAL ANTIPSYCHOTIC FOR SCHIZOPHRENIA
The optimal treatment of schizophrenia poses a challenge to develop more effective treatments and safer drugs, to overcome poor compliance, discontinuation and frequent switching with available antipsychotics. Many antipsychotic medications are currently approved by FDA for the treatment of schizophrenia, but response to these agents remains highly variable. Iloperidone is a new dopamine type 2/serotonin type 2A (D2/5-HT2A) antagonist structurally related to risperidone, expected to give better efficacy with less extrapyramidal symptoms than D2 receptor antagonist antipsychotics. Iloperidone is more efficacious in terms of cognitive functions, less problematic regarding weight gain and metabolic disturbances.
