Developing Effective Treatment Strategies for Women With Schizophrenia


I did not know

“women respond to lower doses of antipsychotic medications. On the other hand, when receiving the same doses as men, women develop more adverse effects.”

This is also an issue since the majority of studies in research have a white male bias and following that there is a 1.4:1 ratio of men to women meaning across the board that women will be taking high dosages of medication since medication isn’t normally on a per mg/kg rate
