These agents are pharmacologically distinct from their neuroleptic predecessors. The primary advantage of the new agents is their superior side effect profiles, particularly with regard to by: OF ANTIPSYCHOTIC DRUGS Antipsychotic drugs are derived from several chemical groups.
These drugs may be broadly categorized as “typical,” con-ventional, or ﬁrst-generation agents (phenothiazines and older nonphenothiazines, such as haloperidol [Haldol], with similar pharmacologic actions, clinical uses, and adverse effects), orFile Size: KB.

The first-generation drugs are further classified as “low potency” or “high potency.” This classification does not indicate clinical effectiveness of the drugs, but rather specifies affinity for the dopamine D2 receptor, which, in turn, may influence the.

The following table lists the most common atypical antipsychotics used to treat bipolar and their benefits and potential side effects. "This book will make an enormous contribution towards a more rational, transparent and ethical approach to the use of neuroleptic drugs.
By implication it also offers up a strong argument for much wider choice for people in crisis, particularly the provision of minimal drug/drug-free systems of help and support, such as Soteria-type facilities and Open Dialogue/5(26).
