Abstract

Clozapine-induced sialorrhea (CIS) is a frequently occurring debilitating adverse effect. Although various treatment options exist, none has been proved to be distinctly superior to others. We report a case of CIS that responded to low dose of trihexyphenidyl (2 mg/day). Copyright MedWorks Media Global, LLC, 1964-2011. All rights reserved.
