Antipsychotic drugs form a large group of psychoactive agents mainly known for their antipsychotic clinical properties, though they are also effective in a variety of nonpsychotic disorders. Originally, these drugs were named neuroleptics, because of their ability to mimic neurological syndromes,1 and this appellation is still in wide use, especially in the United States.
