ARIpiprazole in Anorexia NErvosa
Efficacy of Aripiprazole in the Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa in Teenagers: a Pilot, Randomised, Double Blind, Placebo-controlled Clinical Trial

Evidence is lacking on the effects of different psychotropic drugs in the treatment of anorexia nervosa (AR). However, HVA levels seem to be elevated in this disease, therefore suggesting a role for drugs with a partial agonist profile on dopaminergic receptors. This is a pilot study assessing the effects of aripiprazole in teenagers with AR, compared with a placebo.
