Off-Label Use of Atypical Antipsychotics: An Update

Slide: 26 of 47

Summary of Benefits: Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Adjunctive treatment with risperidone reduces the symptoms of combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The strength of evidence supporting this finding is moderate. As a treatment for abused women with PTSD, the evidence of benefits from risperidone is insufficient to determine an effect. The evidence for olanzapine and quetiapine is insufficient for analysis.
