The atypical antipsychotics, which are sometimes referred to as second-generation antipsychotics, were developed in the late ‘80s and the ‘90s as an alternative to the first-generation antipsychotic drugs such as chlorpromazine, haloperidol .   Some studies have explored the potential neurotoxic effects of antipsychotic medications; however, no clear conclusions have been reached. For example, Ho et al performed structural brain imaging.

      The ill effects of metabolic changes and weight gain are chronic and result in increased sickness and health care costs. Children who grow up obese are at an even higher risk for myriad health issues. Adverse effects. The side effects reportedly associated with the various atypical antipsychotics vary and are medication-specific.
