Drugs used for schizophrenia have different doses and not one suit fits all. The treatment is always tailor-made to suit a patient's need.
For a patient not taking medicines, we have following options:
1. Giving medicines under direct supervision
2. Once to twice a month depot drug injections that keep releasing the drug gradually
3. Admit the patient to a mental health facility where they administer drugs orally or inject them until patient takes the drug by mouth
4. Covert medication- mixed with food etc. (Not recommended unless everything else fails, unethical according to some schools of thought!)
Pls feel free to contact me for private consultation.
Different medicines have different doses..if the patient is not taking medicines the crudest technique is direct supervision.He or she can also be offered insight oriented therapy or a token kind of system to reward the patient when he is taking them properly..
Hi..... Treatment should generally include a combination of medication and community support. Both are usually essential for the best outcome....
Certain medications help the brain to restore its usual chemical balance. This can help to reduce positive symptoms such as hallucinations or delusions.... Consult Psychiatrist....
