Indications for atypical antipsychotics other than schizophrenia so far have included bipolar disorder, major depression, schizoaffective disorder, dementia, delirium, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, and mental retardation, Dr. Prakash S. Masand reported. In 1997, only 38% of risperidone prescriptions in the United States were for the treatment of schizophrenia, while 20% were for bipolar disorder, 11% for dementia, and the rest (31%) for the other disorders listed above.
