Monthly Shot Treats Schizophrenia

Michael has regained his composure with the help of an antipsychotic med in the form of a once a month injection. He says this shot has changed his life, and he is now symptom free, clean, and getting his life back together. He has reconnected with family and he told me with obvious emotion that his niece called him on the phone the other day and told him “I love you, Uncle Mike.” He said, "This was the first time in many years since someone told me that."

"Using an injectable agent ensures the drug gets into the blood. You're not relying on the patient to remember to take a pill every day," physicians say.
