Abstract

Introduction There are several new and emerging antipsychotic medication strategies recently marketed or under clinical development for the treatment of several mental disorders. There is the need to provide an up-to-date overview on the safety of this new generation of antipsychotic medications, which includes also the third-generation antipsychotics (TGA). Areas covered The authors aimed at providing a synthesis of the most current evidence about the safety profile of the recently developed and/or marketed antipsychotics. Qualitative synthesis followed an electronic search made inquiring of the following databases: MEDLINE, Embase, PsycINFO, and the Cochrane Library from inception until March 2020, combining free terms and MESH headings for the topics of TGA and recently developed and/or marketed antipsychotics as following: ((safetyORadverse eventsORside effects) AND ((brexpiprazoleORcariprazineORinhaled loxapineORlumateperone(ITI-007) ORlurasidoneORpimavanserinORroluperidone(MIN-101) ORtransdermal patch asenapine)). Expert opinion Overall, newer antipsychotics display a good safety profile, with a well-demonstrated lower metabolic liability compared to second-generation antipsychotics. Furthermore, TGA appear to specifically target negative symptomatology and improving cognitive domains.
