BACKGROUND: This study aimed to investigate prolactin related symptoms (PRS) in individuals with schizophrenia during risperidone maintenance treatment for one year, as well as to identify the risk factors for PRS. METHODS: In a multicenter, randomized, controlled, longitudinal study, clinically stabilized schizophrenia patients (N = 374) were randomized to a no-dose-reduction group (N = 129) and 4-week (N = 125) and 26-week (N = 120) reduction groups, in which the original dose was followed by a 50 % reduction over 8 weeks and subsequently maintained...

Hyperprolactinemia is a common, but neglected, adverse effect of conventional antipschycotics and of some of the atypical antipshycotics. It occurs in almost 42% of men and in 75% of women with schizophrenia who are treated with prolactin-raising antipshycotics, even though it has aroused minimal interest within the scientific community when compared with extra-pyramidal effects. Conventional antipsychotics and some of the atypical antipsychotics, such as risperidone, paliperidone, amisulpride and zotepine, are frequently associated with the raise in prolactin plasma levels...

A high-throughput LC-MS/MS method was developed for the simultaneous determination of Risperidone and 9-OH-risperidone in human plasma. A semi-automated sample preparation procedure was applied, including protein precipitation after addition of ACN, via a robotic system, and subsequent sub-zero temperature extraction of the latter. Injections of the ACN extractants were performed on a turbulent flow ternary column-switching system, consisted of dual extraction columns in parallel for on-line purification of samples and an analytical column...

We present two cases of patients with schizophrenia treated with minocycline. Minocycline (a second-generation tetracycline) is an established and safe broad-spectrum antibiotic that crosses the blood-brain barrier, with additional efficacy for diseases such as acne and rheumatoid arthritis. Animal studies have suggested that minocycline may prevent progression of some neurological disorders. Moreover, it has been reported that minocycline might have antidepressant effects. We report two cases of acute schizophrenia with predominant catatonic symptoms that responded to minocycline...

An adverse event is described which appeared when the macrolide antibiotic erythromycin was added to a regimen of risperidone 0.5 mg bid and clomipramine 50 mg tid in a 15-year-old male being treated for Tourette's, obsessive-compulsive, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders. An acute onset of behavioral symptoms, including agitation, labile mood, incessant talking, and argumentativeness, began within 24 h of starting the erythromycin and persisted for 9 days after its discontinuation. It was followed by a return to stable functioning on the prior risperidone-clomipramine regimen...
