Khái niệm chung
Psychosis is a serious mental health condition. It is when a person cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is not. Antipsychotic medications help manage symptoms of psychosis. They work by changing brain chemistry to help reduce symptoms like hallucinations, delusions and disordered thinking. There are two types of antipsychotic medication, typical and atypical. Both are commonly used and come in the form of tablets, liquid, or as injections. They can only be prescribed by your GP or mental health specialist.
