Welcome to HCM

It is very common in Psychotic Disorder to have muttering or self talking behavior. She is having restlessness and disturbance in sleeping and due to this she is remembering past incidents. I will advise you to please visit her psychiatrist for proper medicine for sleep. Resperidone is a good drug for psychotic symptoms and it causes sedation also. But as she is having improper sleep please visit psychiatrist.
Espazine is also an antipsychotic drug. It belongs to first generation antipsychotic drugs. It contain Trifluparazine. If she has been prescribed espazine also then it will cover problem of sleep also. For change in medicines if required please visit her psychiatrist. Give her warm and supportive care, she needs your help.

Thanks for your query. Rispond plus is a combination of risperidone and clonazepam. Risperidone is a second generation antipsychotic that is prescribed for all types of psychosis including schizophrenia. Ezpazine is trifluperazine which is a first generation antipsychotic that serves the same purpose.
Antipsychotics require 2-4 weeks for onset of action. Antipsychotics usually need to be taken for prolonged periods of time usually atleast 2 years for most forms of psychosis. Wish her good health.
