Episode 134: Antipsychotics – schizophrenia the drugs – part 3

In episode 134, we get into the nitty gritty of choosing a second drug for schizophrenia if the first one doesn’t work or is not tolerated. In general, it appears there is some evidence to favour clozapine over other agents but the difference isn’t great and as with virtually all of medicine one has to intermingle the available evidence with a good dose of art to make a beautiful therapeutic picture.
