Patients with mental illness constitute a population that can be challenging for any health care provider, but they offer great opportunities for a pharmacist to make a meaningful contribution. The pharmacist’s role might involve assisting in the selection of medication regimens, managing adverse drug reactions, or facilitating adherence. These interventions can be particularly important for patients with schizophrenia.
