Abstract:The aim of nutritional management in schizophrenia is not to offer a cure-all replacement for standard treatment. Signs of clinical improvement are best determined with outcome measures before and during nutritional adjunct therapy. If monitored carefully, neuroleptic withdrawal can be done with minimal negative side-effects when nutritional adjuncts are used in schizophrenic patients showing consistent improvement. Slow careful withdrawal is extremely important to avoid rebound psychosis. This neuroleptic withdrawal concept is an optimal dosing principle associated with improved patient response.
