Antipsychotic treatments can cause several side effects, such as weight gain, metabolic syndrome, which could lead to cardiovascular complications (CVC). A number of models are available for the evaluation of the economic impact of antipsychotics in schizophrenia, but few of them properly consider metabolic syndrome and associated complications. The objective of this study was to build a new model to reflect the real patient therapeutic management of patients with schizophrenia.
