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?

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