You are here

The article reports on the problems with the standardmedical treatment of schizophrenia by Dr. Jonathan E. Prousky in Canada. Standard treatments use powerful atypical antipsychotic drugs (APDs) such as clozapine, and risperidone, to act on dopamine receptors within the central nervous system, and reduce symptoms of the disease for about 15-20%. However, schizophrenia patients who take the atypical APDs are at high rish for brain damage, cardiac arrhythmias, and sexual dysfunction.
