Summary

The Norwegian national clinical guidelines for assessment, treatment and follow-up of persons with psychotic disorders recommend antipsychotic drug treatment as first choice in the treatment of acute psychosis and for prevention of relapses. Some have questioned whether the positive effects of antipsychotic drugs outweigh the adverse events for treatment over several years duration. We will conduct an overview of systematic reviews on the evidence about effect and adverse events of long-term treatment with antipsychotics.
