Unwanted Side Effects of Antipsychotic Drugs

Posted in: Clinical Trials

There are currently ongoing Schizophrenia Research Studies New York Citythat are looking for people suffering from schizophrenia to participate in their clinical trials. The goal of such studies may not just be to identify drugs that might be more effective at treating the symptoms of this disorder, but also to identify drugs that can do so with fewer or less severe unwanted side effects.For example, weight gain is a common side effect of many antipsychotic medications.  As a result, some people will refuse to be treated because of the social implications associated with weight gain.

If you are someone who is concerned about the relative side effects of the antipsychotic medicationyou are currently taking, you might want to look into whether any of the Schizophrenia Research Studies New York City are evaluating a new or currently approved drug that has, as one of its potential advantages,a more appealing side effects profile than other drugs currently available.

Remember…  To effectively control the unwanted behavioral symptoms of this disorder, you must take your antipsychotic medication as prescribed by your doctor.
