The article presents the results of preliminary observations of the clinical use of clopenthixol decanoate in the management of aggressive and disruptive mentally handicapped patients. Ten patients treated for behavior disorders at the Stoke Park Group of Hospitals in England were included. The observations indicate that clopenthixol decanoate may be useful in reducing aggressive and disruptive behavior in mentally handicapped adults.
