Hello i'm a family doctor and i wanted to consult about my son, 9 years ago at the age of 20 he experienced 'acute psychosis', he was admitted to a mental ward for 3 month, his diagnosis was 'paranoid schiz'. while staying there he was treated with medications, and was given 12 electerical shock therapy. He got extremely better afterwards. He was sent home, and was givven medication per os and also injection. After 3 years all the therapy was ceased except for a shot of 'Halidole' 100 mg. now he is getting only this for about 4 years now once a month. His mental condition is good and stable, he is now 29 years old, working and social in society. Now he wants to stop doing the injection and to be treatment free. MY QUESTIONS ARE: 1. If we stop the injection treatment what are the chances\statistics for the condition returning? and not returning 2. Is there any replacement for Halidole injection with per os product?
