I've met another lady on this board who has a mother with schizophrenia. My father has had this illness for about 25 years. I don't know how much advice I can give because my understanding is that men and woman are treated with different dosages. My dad is getting up in age and his illness mostly only shows the negative symptoms now, plus severe TD after years of meds. Having said this he swears by Zyprexa. He is on a low dose, maybe 10 or 15mg. He was switched from the one psych to another because of his TD. He also has a nurse who he has seen for many years at a mental health clinic. How much support does your mom have in her community?

I've never heard of Navane.
