Title / Titel Prevalence of extrapyramidal syndromes - follow-up study
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung A group of 200 psychiatric inpatients were studied 1995 with regard to the prevalence of extrapyramidal syndromes, especially tardive dyskinesia, and their dependence on neuroleptic treatment. On follow-up, the same group of patients was traced and re-assessed with exactly the same methods. The intraindividual development of the syndromes is being evaluated considering the neuroleptic therapy the patients received in the meantime. Olso, quality of life of these patients will be considered.
