Lurasidone is a new atypical antipsychotic that is effective for short- and long-term treatment of patients with schizophrenia. It joins ziprasidone and aripiprazole as 'metabolically friendly' treatments but, unlike ziprasidone, has a low risk of causing QT prolongation. Possible side effects include akathisia and parkinsonism.
