Benztropine mesylate (intravenous [IV] and oral) challenge was compared with brief neuroleptic withdrawal on dyskinesia ratings and symptom measures. Thirty-six neuroleptic-treated patients underwent a placebo-controlled acute IV challenge with 2 mg benztropine and a placebo-controlled two-week trial of oral benztropine mesylate (2 mg three times a day),(More)
Sixty-five subjects were reviewed 12 months after tinnitus management training, which had been comprised variously of information, relaxation training and a therapeutic noise strategy. Seventy-four per cent of subjects reported increased habituation to tinnitus (n = 48), 65% reported reduced tinnitus annoyance (n = 42), and 52% reported an increased ability(More)
