Association study of serotonergic gene variants with antipsychotic-induced adverse reactions.

INTRODUCTION The products of the serotonin receptor genes are important targets for conventional and atypical antipsychotics, and may be relevant for antipsychotic activity and associated adverse reactions. It has been shown that the high potency at 5-HT2 receptors may also be associated with the production of moderate extrapyramidal side effects (EPS). In… CONTINUE READING
