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
