A retrospective evaluation of long-term fluspirilene (IMAP) treatment

Fluspirilene proved to be a very useful drug in the basic maintenance therapy of 21 chronic schizophrenic patients (ages 16-71 years), who received individually adjusted doses weekly during their hospitalization and during the subsequent follow-up period. The follow-up data analysis showed that the antipsychotic efficacy of the drug after prolonged (8-21.5 months) treatment was nicely maintained, that the patients' socio-professional integration had improved significantly, while a small decrease in dosage proved possible in several cases. The incidence of side-effects remained low, and no signs of accumulation or toxicity could be detected.
