Endocrinological function in schizophrenic patients under haloperidol treatment: plasma PRL, HGH and 5HT levels after L-5HTP loading.

Abstract

In order to examine 5HT metabolism in the hypothalamo-pituitary (HP) system of chronic schizophrenic patients taking haloperidol for a short or long period, chronological changes of blood 5HT, PRL and HGH were measured after an oral loading dose of L-5hydroxytryptophan (L-5HTP), a precursor of 5HT.
