Non-responsiveness is defined as lack of satisfactory clinical improvement despite the use of adequate doses of at least two classes of marketed antipsychotic drugs prescribed for reasonable durations. Intolerance is defined as the impossibility to achieve adequate benefit with other antipsychotic drugs because of severe and untreatable neurological adverse reactions (extrapyramidal side effects or tardive dyskinesia).
