Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

Sir: McKeith et al. reported severe extrapyramidal side effects (EPS) during treatment with low doses of risperidone in three cases of Lewy body dementia. Subsequently, Mahmood et al. discussed the case of a 30-year-old male schizophrenic who experienced EPS on a daily dose of 4 mg of risperidone. Risperidone has been found to have low propensity to induce EPS, but in some patients these symptoms can be particularly troublesome.
