Better Outcomes With Antipsychotics Plus Psychosocial Treatment for Early Schizophrenia

Combining antipsychotic medication with psychosocial treatment leads to better outcomes for patients with early-stage schizophrenia compared with antipsychotics alone, according to a new randomized controlled trial from China.

The improved outcomes included lower rates of treatment discontinuation and relapse, lower rates of nonadherence, and improved quality of life and social functioning, write the researchers.
