Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

To manage residual schizophrenia on a daily basis, follow your doctor's treatment plan. The most important thing to do is to continue taking your medication; if you have questions about side-effects or find it difficult to continue taking your medication due to side-effects, you should talk to your doctor. You may also have a treatment plan that includes life skill training and therapy; this should be continued, as well. If you think you are about to enter a more acute phase of your condition, and you are developing symptoms that go along with this, you should talk to your doctor right away.
