    Adjunctive medications

    Other drugs are also used in psychosis therapy apart from antipsychotics and corrective drugs. Particularly in situations when the patient experiences significant changes in mood (such as depression) or behavioural changes (e.g. aggressiveness). Then the current antipsychotics (typical or atypical) are combined with either anti-depressants, or mood stabilizers. The above mentioned drugs belong to the group of psychotropic medications.

    Antipsychotics

    Schizophrenia is a disturbance in the metabolic balance of the brain and in neurotransmitter activity at certain brain areas. Although, no "anti-schizophrenic" medicine has been invented so far, the use of available antipsychotic drugs enables remission or alleviation of psychotic symptoms, as well as protection against disease relapses.
