James H. Nichols Neuroleptics are antipsychotic drugs that are used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. They are subdivided into "typical" and "atypical" drug classes, based on chemical structure and associated pharmacological properties. Typical neuroleptics include phenothiazines, thioxanthenes, butyrophenones, dihydroindoles, dibenzoxapines, diphenylbutylpiperidines, and benzamides. Atypical neuroleptics include clozapine, risperidone, ziprasidone, sertindole, and benzothiazepine derivatives.
