My sister is on medication for schizophrenia since 2005 under Dr. K.K.Sinha of Ranchi. The medicines were stopped in April 2013 However problem reoccurred 4 months later. She was given Quel 200, Joykem 200 and Kamiyan 100. Quel was dropped 6 months later. Power of Joykem and Kamiyan were reduced slowly. For the last 1 year she is taking Prati CR 12.5 as the problem was diminished. But the problem has surfaced again with full severity. Doctor has given date after 2 months. What should be done for the period ?Name of the medicines has been wrongly typed. It's Lamosyn , not Kamiyan. And it's pexti , nor Prati.
