An open, prospective assessment of the treatment of severe aggression and self-injurious behavior (SIB) with paroxetine in 15 institutionalized persons with mental retardation was undertaken. Frequency and severity of aggression and SIB were charted. Results found that aggression severity only was reduced over the entire four-month follow-up period. (Author/CR)
