"No clinical differences will be found between the three antipsychotics under study - olanzapine, risperidone and haloperidol - on the patients' metabolic profile and weight. "

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metabolic Syndrome Diabetes Obesity Drug: Olanzapine Drug: Risperidone Drug: Haloperidol Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
we aimed to study the effects of antipsychotics, olanzapine, risperidone and haloperidol on development of metabolic syndrome in a drug naïve population suffering from first episode schizophrenia and compared it with a matched healthy control group. We also aimed to examine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome as defined by the two most widely accepted definitions, the ATP IIIA and the IDF.
