NEW Psychiatry. People with psychotic disorders have high levels of co-morbidity and sadly their life expectancy is reduced by 10-25 years. Thinking long-term from the beginning is key, so in the first part of this interview we discuss the efficacy across all current treatments and the side effect profile, including short-term effects such as sedation and long-term concerns with weight and particularly metabolic functioning.
