Antipsychotic-induced DRD2 upregulation and its prevention by α-lipoic acid in SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells.


Most antipsychotic (AP) drugs are dopamine (DA) D2 receptor (DRD2) antagonists and remain the main pharmacological treatment of schizophrenia. Long-term AP use can give rise to tardive dyskinesia.
