Psychiatrist 's  Response
Well,i can't say much since you havent mentioned the medication. I would suggest him to be put on a regular dose of antipsychotic like olanzapine,risperidone etc.Catatonia usually respond well to lorazepam if given acutely.i would suggest you to put him back to older medicines if he was better on that
Regards
