In the next section, the book goes into a lengthy description of the side effects of neuroleptics. However, it is this class of drugs that has allowed scores of patients to settle in the community rather than being housed in state psychiatric centers. It is acknowledged that not all patients are able to leave the state hospitals or respond to neuroleptics. As a clinician, I see both medication responders and nonresponders. The atypical neuroleptics, such as clozapine, risperidone, olanzapine, and quetiapine, have helped large groups of patients be more spontaneous and alert. This section seems only to tell us what we know about neuroleptics, and patients and families may feel extremely discouraged.
