The schizophrenia treatment algorithm for the CINP website produced by Stefan Leucht, Celso Arango, Shitij Kapur, Wolfgang Fleischhacker, Jim van Os, Scott Stroup and Christoph Correll is now available.
The structure is as follows: we have a number of recommendations which are broadly classified in “A) Treatment of an acute episode”, “B) Specific patient populations/symptoms”, “C) maintenance treatment” and “D) prophylaxis/management of side-effects”. Each recommendation is backed-up by a short paragraph summarising the evidence. The order of the recommendations partly follows the natural flow of treatment. And there are two tables (one with doses, the other one with side-effects) which are quoted several times. Click here to read full report.
