Abstract

While obsessive-compulsive (OC) symptoms in schizophrenia have been reported for many years, they have achieved only limited recognition and, perhaps for this reason, few studies their pharmacological treatment have been carried out. One suggested treatment approach is the use of different agents for different symptoms. In this article, we review the small number of published studies and case reports regarding this multi-pharmacological method of treatment for OC symptoms in schizophrenia. While each study used a somewhat different patient population and provided varying and limited information concerning patient sample, study design, and results, some tentative conclusions and treatment recommendations may be drawn from their findings.
