Sulpiride: an advance in neuroleptics?


Sulpiride (Dolmatil - Squibb) is a substituted benzamide related to metoclopramide. It has only recently been marketed in the UK, but has been used in Europe for many years. The manufacturer claims that the drug has both antidepressive and neuroleptic properties, and that it is of particular benefit for schizophrenic patients who develop social withdrawal. Extrapyramidal side effects are claimed to be less than with conventional neuroleptics.
