I just spoke with someone from the company carrying out the trial and it will be the same medication (paliperidone) I am already on but administered every 3 months instead. I'm not sure that I'm going to do it. As it means clinic visits of upto 4 hours at a time and filling out forms. As well as the travelling there and back.
