neuroleptics are known to cause neurolepsis. Neurolepsis
was described by clinicians in the fifties as a syndrome having three major
features: psychomotor slowing, emotional quieting, and affective indifference.
It was believed that in order for the drug to have efficacy the features need
to be present. Currently, it has become clear that the features are not
required to have therapeutic action and the presence of these features leads to
low treatment adherence. (Guzman, Flavio, 2015). First generation
antipsychotics are classified by their potency. Potency is not the same as

unsteady Parkinson’s like movement, body rigidity and tremors. Atypical
antipsychotics are newer and are different pharmacologically than typical
antipsychotics. They can be more effective in treating treatment resistant
patients and have greater efficacy to treat negative treatments. The drugs in
this category act on many receptor types including dopamine and
