Each first-generation antipsychotic is classified according to its potency, with low-potency antipsychotics requiring higher doses to achieve the same effect as high-potency ones, but with different side effects (Rijcken et al., 2003). Interestingly, the potency of an antipsychotic may not be related to its efficacy, as is often perceived by clinicians. Currently, there is little evidence to indicate as much, meaning that treatment guidelines (at least in Europe) recommend typical antipsychotics equivalently regardless of potency (Gaebel et al., 2006).
When we ingest vitamins, minerals, and amino acids through the mouth and allow them to enter the digestive system, only a small amount- typically about 10%- of their therapeutic benefit is absorbed via the digestive system and put to use by the patient’s body. This means that High Potency Vitamin IV Therapy is by far the most effective and efficient method to deliver the therapeutic benefits provided by natural, high potency vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

The oldest depots available were haloperidol and fluphenazine , with flupentixol and zuclopenthixol as more recent additions. All have a similar, predominantly extrapyramidal, side effect profile though there are some variations between patients. More recently, long acting preparations of the atypical antipsychotic, risperidone , and its metabolite paliperidone , have become available thus offering new choices. However, Risperidone tends to have a higher incidence of extrapyramidal effects when compared to the tricyclic and tetracyclic atypical antipsychotics, such as quetiapine , clozapine , olanzapine , etc. [ citation needed ]
