Overview

Though possessing many advantages, many Antipsychotic drugs (APDs) have a major liability in their ability to promote adiposity, obesity, and metabolic dysregulation in an already metabolically vulnerable population. The past decade has witnessed substantial research efforts aimed at quantifying, understanding, preventing, and alleviating these adverse effects and our goal is to provide a scientific update of these findings and discuss future research needs.
