Are antipsychotic drugs safe?

As with any medications, antipsychotic drugs have side effects. Here are some tips to help you navigate this aspect of medication:

 

1) Know the Risks

Conduct thorough research to understand the risks of your medication.  Consult more than one source to gain the most complete information. If you have questions or concerns about possible side effects of your medication, your doctor immediately.

 

2) Don’t Be Afraid

No two people are the same in their response to medications. If your friend has had a reaction to their medication that doesn’t mean that you will also have the same reaction.

 

3) Explore The Alternatives

In some cases, counseling, can be more effective than medications. Speak with your doctor about natural alternatives.
