What Is Schizoaffective Disorder Medication Skip to main content

Understanding Schizoaffective Disorder Medication

Because schizoaffective disorder has symptoms of both psychosis and a mood disorder, doctors often prescribe different medicines to treat different symptoms of the condition. For example, they may prescribe:

  • An antipsychotic, which helps symptoms like delusions and hallucinations
  • A mood-stabilizing medicine, which can help level out “highs” and “lows”
  • An antidepressant, which can help feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and difficulty with sleep and concentration
