Second Generation Antisychotics (SGAs), also referred to as Atypical Antipsychotics, are used to treat negative symptoms (such as withdrawal, poverty of speech, apathy or the like), cognitive and affective symptoms and to treat schizophrenia.

There are currently six (6) available SGAs, including Zyprexa®, Clozaril®, Risperdal®, Seroquel®, Geodon®, and Abilify®.

Several medical associations have urged users of SGAs to be watched carefully to ensure that they are not developing diabetes.
