Optimal dose of amisulpride for acute exacerbation of schizophrenia

As published in Clinical Drug Investigation, an initial amisulpride dose of 800 mg (n=38) is more effective that 400 mg with dose titration (n=30) in patients with an acute exacerbation of schizophrenia. A greater number of patients in the 800 mg group than the 400 mg with dose titration group had a 30% reduction in the Positive and Negative Symptom Scale after 4 (68.4% vs. 40.0%) and 6 weeks (71.1% vs. 43.3%).
