Sir: We read with great interest the letter by Paquet et al.1 on sleep-related eating disorder (SRED) induced by olanzapine. The authors presented a case of SRED induced by the addition of olanzapine for the treatment of bipolar I disorder. It is the first case report describing an association between SRED and olanzapine use. Here, we present another case of atypical antipsychotic–induced SRED that was induced by the addition of risperidone for the treatment of psychotic disorder due to vascular dementia. SRED was related to the patient’s risperidone dose.
