Letter to the Editor
Sir: Poor compliance with antipsychotic medication, which
would potentially lead to disease relapse, has been challenging
for psychiatrists when treating schizophrenia. Long-acting
injection of antipsychotics is an appropriate alternative, since
better compliance improves treatment outcomes. Mirror-image
studies, in which each patient acts as his/her own control,
of long-acting injection of conventional antipsychotics have
shown significant decreases in numbers of hospitalizations and
days of hospitalization.
