Abstract

The metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a common side effect of second-generation antipsychotic drugs (SGAs), leading to poor prognosis in patients with mental illness. The traditional Chinese herbal formula Ling-Gui-Zhu-Gan decoction (LGZGD) is a clinically validated remedy for SGAs-induced MetS, but its underlying mechanism remains unclear.
