my wife has been diagnosed with schizo and she was exposed to the ECT pulse and prescribed zyprexa, depakine, artane, and haloperidol but she couldn't abide them and left them all after that the symptoms seems to return again but we went to another doc who gave her lagactil, haloperidol, seroquel and artane which i don't know if she is going to folow with them or she will stop.
It is difficult to say which medicine is the most gentle for treating schizophrenia, as all of them have side effects. Your wife seems to be on a cocktail of medicines. Just as a suggestion, maybe it would be better for her to have one medicine. This will probably increase her compliance.
Maybe something like Risperidone or Olanzapine. I see she has already been on olanzapine, but a single medicine may help. Just a suggestion.
She needs to take her medicines though - try to monitor her and help her to medicate.
