A friend of mine has schizoaffective disorder. For her, the key to her treatment is to prevent mania. Once a manic episode is triggered, it eventually develops into psychosis with visual and auditory hallucinations. Stress and anxiety are her worst enemies during times of remission. They seem to trigger the mania. Benzodiazepines, particularly Ativan and Xanax, serve her well to prevent that from happening. An antpsychotic alone just doesn't seem to do the trick. She also takes Zyprexa and Neurontin, and I think Wellbutrin.
