Özet

Objective: Many patients with schizophrenia respond partially to treatment with antipsychotic medications. A wide range of pharmaceutical agents are utilized as augmentation therapy in order to increase the efficacy of antipsychotic medication treatment. Memantine, a noncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist is one of these add-on agents. In this study we aimed to assess the efficacy of memantine augmentation by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis on the psychopathology of patients with schizophrenia receving antipsychotic medication.
