Antipsychotics: Given if you do not have metabolic syndrome, than newer generation antipsychotics are usually first line of treatment, in order of potency meaning efficacy and risk of side effects and benefits they include risperdal zyprexa seroquel (quetiapine) geodon abilify others include iloperidone etc usually seroquel (quetiapine) is mid range with less effects to cause eps, td, nms also, risk of orthostasis, dizzines, falls.
