Study Start Date: December 2003
Study Completion Date: March 2005
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Low-Dose Ziprasidone Drug: Ziprasidone

Period 1: Initial dose of oral ziprasidone suspension 10 mg twice daily, which was titrated up in 10 mg twice daily increments to a maximum dose of 40 mg twice daily by Day 10.

Period 2: patients could switch to oral capsules or remain on oral suspension; doses were flexibly titrated to between 10 and 80 mg twice daily based on the individual needs of the patient as determined by the investigator; concomitant antidepressants and/or mood stabilizers were allowed during Period 2 but not Period 1.

Other Name: Geodon, Zeldox
Active Comparator: High-Dose Ziprasidone Drug: Ziprasidone

Period 1: Initial dose of oral ziprasidone suspension 20 mg twice daily, which was titrated up in 20 mg twice daily increments to a maximum dose of 80 mg twice daily by Day 10.

Period 2: patients could switch to oral capsules or remain on oral suspension; doses were flexibly titrated to between 10 and 80 mg twice daily based on the individual needs of the patient as determined by the investigator; concomitant antidepressants and/or mood stabilizers were allowed during Period 2 but not Period 1.
