  • Perceived effectiveness for Schizophrenia: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Though the taste is horrible, this is honestly the best psychiatric medication I have ever taken. It has nearly eliminated all of my schizophrenic symptoms including visual and auditory hallucinations, paranoia, racing thoughts, and disorganized thoughts, speech and behavior - Just to name a few. I have never felt better since I've been on this, and it works quickly if you need an emergency dose - in about 10 minutes I can feel a difference. I highly suggest you try this medication. The side effects are nearly non-existent.
