New neuroleptic drugs are being developed for the treatment of schizophrenia and other psychoses. Clozapine and risperidone are available for general use. Sertindole and olanzapine are nearing release. Seroquel and ziprazidone are in the final stages of study. This generation of drugs will provide advantages in the area of lower motor side effects and probably in improved negative symptom treatment.
