In reply to Onset Of Psychosis May Be Delayed By Medication, posted by tygereyes on May 1, 2006, at 18:53:06
I'm sure there could be some benefit, if you could see in a crystal ball who was going to end up w/ psychosis. But isn't there also some evidence that positive life circumstances can also prevent psychosis? This seems a more reasonable prevention strategy.
I believe smoking is known to reduce the risk of schizophrenia. Not that that is a good solution, but there may be mechanisms of action there that are worthy of investigation, with medications more tolerable in general vs. antipsychotics.
