Schizophrenia with OCD   Posted By Dr P.S.Murthy    Date : 25-Jan-05   10:15 AM     Reply

I have a management problem while treating a 18 yrs girl.Initially she presented with Schizophrenic features. Responded well with neuroleptic drugs. After 2-3 months, she presented with OCD symptoms while on maintainace medication. While treating OCD with Tab Fluoxetine Hcl(40mg) and Tab Fluvoxine(200mg), schizophrenic symptoms are reappearing. Tab olanzepine 10 mg/day administered concurrently without much benefit. At this juncture, how to manage the case? Is ECT, a good choice now?
