Role of long-acting neuroleptics in the treatment of schizophrenia

L'Encéphale

Abstract

This paper summarizes the presentations made during the Lucca symposium (1-3 October, 1977) on long-acting neuroleptics. The authors tried to present advantages and inconveniences of this therapeutic compared to the "classical" neuroleptic therapeutics: - in patients with an acute symptomatology; - in stabilized patients. The main advantage is that one can be ensured that the drug has been or not been taken.
