Brief Summary:
This study is a six-week, open label trial of the novel antipsychotic agent, ziprasidone, added to a stable dose of clozapine or olanzapine in 40 diabetes mellitus patients, patients with an impaired fasting glucose or insulin resistance with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder. The first two weeks will be a fixed-dose of ziprasidone 40 mg twice a day. During weeks 2-6, the ziprasidone dose may be increased up to 80 mg twice a day.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Fasting Glucose [ Time Frame: baseline, week 6 ]
    Subjects on clozapine with adjunctive ziprasidone were compared to subjects on olanzapine with adjunctive ziprasidone on change in fasting glucose levels from baseline to study endpoint (week 6 - baseline)

  2. Change From Baseline on Fasting Insulin [ Time Frame: baseline, week 6 ]
    Subjects on clozapine with adjunctive ziprasidone were compared to subjects on olanzapine with adjunctive ziprasidone on change in fasting insulin levels from baseline to study endpoint (week 6 - baseline)
