Patient and Family Guide to Antipsychotic Medication

CADDAC National Director

For those parents whose children have been prescribed antipsychotic medication such as:

  • quetiapine (Seroquel)
  • risperidone (Risperdal)
  • aripiprazole (Abilify)
  • olanzapine (Zyprexa)
  • clozapine (Clozaril)
  • paliperidone (Invega)
  • ziprasidone (Zeldox)

A useful resource developed by the BC Mental Health and Addiction Service just came to my attention. This booklet entitled “Patient & Family Guide to Second-Generation Antipsychotics” provides information on side effects and how to monitor them as well as general lifestyle tips.

You can access the booklet at .
