Abstract

Objective: Zuclopenthixol acetate (ZA) is the first parenteral antipsychotic medication introduced for clinical use in the treatment of aggression and agitation that has a relatively prolonged duration of action. The aim of this paper is to explore a number of important ethical and clinical issues that are raised by the use of this novel therapeutic formulation. Method: Relevant literature is explored and several issues are identified from which arguments for and against the use of medication of this type areraised. These issues are considered in general and with the use of a number of stylised clinical scenarios. Result: The use of long-acting antipsychotic medication is complicated by its impact upon patient autonomy, by considerations of informed consent andby the need to provide justice to all patients and staff in a psychiatric treatment setting. The use of ZA in the emergency treatment of psychotic patients may only be justified under specific clinical circumstances and its use is not appropriate as routine chemical restraint. Conclusions: Zuclopenthixol acetate is a novel and potentially useful treatment alternative in the acutely disturbed patient. Institutions in which ZA is used in emergency settings should develop protocols to guide clinicians in its appropriate use and provide monitoring.
