People with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia can expect their doctors to consider several interventions, including medications, and psychotherapies. Here are some treatments:
  • Medication. Antipsychotic medications that treat the positive symptoms of schizophrenia and the manic include Zyprexa, Risperdal, Seroquel, and Geodon. Mood stabilizers like Lithobid and anticonvulsant medications like Depakote, Tegretol, and Lamictal treat active manic.
  • Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). This can treat people whose symptoms of bipolar disorder or schizophrenia are severe and have inadequately responded to psychotherapies and a number of medications.
  • Talk therapy. It is an important part of helping individuals living with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia achieve the highest level of functioning possible by improving ways of coping with the illness.

Hi, I am sorry for your condition, what medications are you taking? I think I will not help you a lot. But I think you can go to see a psychiatrist in a good hospital to see if there is novel medication for this disorder.
