Abstract


  • We read with great interest Henderson and colleagues’ paper in your journal (2009;

    29:165–169), which reported that aripiprazole reduced olanzapine-induced

    overweight/obesity and hyperlipidemia in a 10-week placebo-controlled double-blind

    crossover study. This and their previous studies, provide a new way for controlling

    olanzapine- and clozapine-induced weight gain/obesity using another atypical

    antipsychotic, even without reducing the original olanzapine and clozapine doses,

    which is important particularly for treatment of refractory schizophrenia patients.
