    Rationale: Atypical antipsychotic drug (APD)- induced weight gain causes non-compliance, increasing the risk of relapse and medical complications.

    Substantial increases in body weight can be induced by several antipsychotic drugs, most notably olanzapine and clozapine. Antagonism at certain receptors, particularly 5-HT2C and histamine H1 receptors, is implicated in this effect. We have investigated the contribution of effects at these...

    Rationale. Although enhanced appetite and weight gain are potential side effects of treatment with antipsychotic agents, particularly olanzapine and clozapine, the mechanism is poorly understood. Objectives. To test the hypothesis that ghrelin, a gastrointestinal hormone that enhances appetite,...
