Looking at your other answers.I tend to agree with Phylixia. Crucial thing is being open with staff working with you – yes CBT may have a part to play but with psychosis it is often used in combination with medication – if you are noticing psychotic symptoms returning it is probably important to act fairly quickly to regain stability.Side effects are a very real issue for many people with psychosis though, so important that professionals listen to you and do whatever they can to find the right medication & dose for you. Acupuncture can do wonders for things of the mind. Source(s):Been there, done that ;-)
