Medication

Medication is vital in the treatment of schizophrenia; it helps prevent relapses and hospitalizations.

There are different medications available to help control the symptoms of schizophrenia but they have different advantages and drawbacks. The doctor should discuss all the important aspects of each treatment option with the patient and their family, and help them to make decisions about the most suitable treatment together. The doctor should make sure that all the information needed is made available for the patient and their family and may suggest the most appropriate drug for the patient.
