Abstract

Because of the potential adverse events and teratogenesis of antipsychoticdrugs, it is important to find a safe and effective treatment for pregnantwomen with severe mental illness. The membrane hypothesis of schizophreniaprovides a rationale to treat symptoms of schizophrenia with omega-3 PUFAs. We report a 30-year-old married woman with chronic schizophrenia, who experienced an episode of acute exacerbation of psychotic symptoms during pregnancy. After entering into an open trial of omega-3 PUFAs monotherapy, she showed a dramatic improvement in both positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia and a significant increase of omega-3 PUFA composition in erythrocyte membrane. There were no adverse effects in this treatment. Thus, omega-3 PUFAs could be both beneficial and therapeutic to pregnant schizophrenic women. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science BY All rights reserved.
