Establishing a healthy treatment routine

Why is it important to receive your medicine? 


Antipsychotic medicines don’t cure schizophrenia, but they may be effective in reducing and controlling your symptoms. They may help you to feel more stable and able to get on with your life. 


It is important that you continue to take your medicine as prescribed by your doctor, even if you start to feel better. Continuous medicine may help to prevent relapses. 

Tips to help you manage your monthly injection

  • Add your appointment to your mobile phone or diary as soon as you have arranged it.
  • If a friend or family member usually drives you, make sure you let them know as soon as you add the appointment to your diary.

  • Ask a member of your treatment team to remind you of your next appointment a few days before your next injection.

  • Place a reminder somewhere that you will see it regularly e.g. on your refrigerator door.
