The inherent wide interindividual variability in response and tolerability of side effects in the treatment of schizophrenia itself provides a compelling rationale for the great potential of pharmacogenetics. Moreover, this potential is consonant with the broader public health directive toward personalized medicine. Within schizophrenia, the progress thus far has been modest in both the treatment response and adverse effect domains. This chapter chronicles the progress made in the quest for pharmacogenetic predictors in the treatment of schizophrenia.
