  • Thank you very much for these infographics.

    With regards to long-term treatment with neuroleptics may I suggest to include the issue of drug withdrawal leading to rebound psychosis (due to neurolpetic-induced dopamine receptor upregulation) with a high probability.

    This issue should be adressen at the beginning of neurolpetic long-term treatment so patients and their friends and families all know that it will be very difficult for them to get off these meds in case they don’t work (which is in the majority of cases).

    In addition, the lack of psychiatrists willing and knowledgeable in helping patients stay safe in the neuroleptic treatment withdrawal process is another huge issue in and of itself.
