Abstract

The case illustrates a common clinical scenario, focusing on the practical clinical issues in changing treatments. It draws attention to the need to carefully monitor the switch from traditional to second-generation antipsychotics. This is particularly important in patients with severe symptoms, so as not to confuse withdrawal effects from present medications with apparent failure of the new treatments.
