the psych drugs have pretty much the same affect on everyone's brains. maybe not when there's serious brain damage or heavy psych drug cocktails at work?

the question isn't will adding (lithium, tegretol, whatever) "improve the Schizophrenia" per se, so much as it is...

what is being targeted? if its a group home environment, for instance, there seems to be a tendency towards excessively high tranquilizer dosages and also the heavy handed use of mood drugs (I've heard its mostly depakote in my area).

if someone is living alone and trying to work, one might see the use of, say, trileptal or lamictal to try to keep the tranquilizer dosage as low as possible, so they can function better in day to day life.

I cannot imagine clozapine -and- lithium. that sounds like punishment, honestly. ugh. :-(
