Abstract

Twenty-four weeks of adjunctive therapy with risperidone or olanzapine after remission of acute mania was effective in reducing relapse to a mood episode, but a longer 52-week duration of adjunctive antipsychotic treatment showed no additional benefit and increased the risk of adverse effects, a new study has found.
