Abstract

Ten elderly chronic schizophrenia patients who were not responding to an atypical antipsychotic were switched to quetiapine. The Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS) demonstrated statistically significant improvement after 6 months of quetiapine treatment. Four patients discontinued treatment due to clinical exacerbation or sedation. There was no increase in abnormal movements or body weight.
