Treating Schizophrenia, One Symptom at a Time: Is it Feasible?(Video: 1:40 minutes)

What antipsychotic—if any—is most effective in a patient with schizophrenia whose chief symptom is hyper-religiosity? Does clozapine play a special role in this kind of setting?

Might an isolated symptom such as hyper-religiosity be a manifestation of a delusional disorder instead? Is it possible to target therapy with a particular antipsychotic?

Here, noted schizophrenia expert Peter Buckley, MD, addresses these questions. Dr Buckley is Dean of the Medical College of Georgia.
