ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study by Fuminari Misawa and colleagues conducted to examine the contribution of administering multiple antipsychotic drugs in metabolic syndrome in schizophrenic outpatients. A cross-sectional survey was carried out between April 2007 and October 2007 at Yamanashi Prefectural KITA hospital in Japan. The results suggest that antipsychotic polypharmacy, compared with monotherapy, may be independently associated with an increased risk of having pre-metabolic syndrome.
