Iloperidone is one of the newest second generation antipsychotic medications approved in the United States for the acute treatment of schizophrenia in adults. Iloperidone binds tightly to serotonin-2A (5HT2A) and dopamine-2 (D2) receptors with very little affinity to histamine-1 (H1) and muscarinic-1,2 (M1–2) receptors. The efficacy of iloperidone for the treatment of schizophrenia has been established in three 6 week trials, one 4 week trial, and three 52-week follow-up studies. Iloperidone is generally well tolerated. The most common adverse effects observed in clinical studies of iloperidone are dizziness, weight gain, sedation, tachycardia, and orthostatic hypotension. This medication may serve as an additional treatment option for patients with schizophrenia.

I have had nothing but positive experiences publishing with Libertas Academica. The publication procedure is as quick and smooth as any I've encountered, and the peer review process is sufficiently rigorous that the reader can have complete confidence in the content of its journals.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
