Anxiety may worsen outcome in psychotic disorders. We assessed anxiety in 44 acutely psychotic subjects and found a positive association with heart rate and blood pressure. Risperidone treatment reduced anxiety but increased heart rate. We concluded that anxiety may adversely affect cardiovascular status in schizophrenia, but the anxiolytic effect of risperidone is not straightforward.
