Hi Rakesh,

Thank you for posting your query.

Schizophrenia is a chronic illness, requiring medications for a long period of time. Good thing is that the medicines used for treating schizophrenia are very safe and do not lead to any serious side effects.

So, if you are doing well and are not having any side effects, I would suggest you continue using the drugs.

Dialysis is not recommended for treating schizophrenia.

I hope it answers your query.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
