Hello, the Doctor who are well versed with treatment of schizophrenia are psychiatrist and can be easily found around you in Bangalore. One of the best mental health institute NIMHANS is also based in Bangalore.
The medication are mostly safe and multiple drugs are available. However you must issue safety concerns with your treating psychiatrist about specific medication prescribed.
Yes rTMS is a safe technology, however is specifically used in some clinical situations which can be discussed in person with your psychiatrist.
Hope this helps you..

Hi..... Schizophrenia is usually treated with a combination of medication and therapy appropriate to each individual. In most cases, this will be antipsychotic medicines and cognitive behavioural therapy.... Many people recover from schizophrenia, although they may have periods when symptoms return .... Support and treatment can help reduce the impact the condition has on your life.....
