A 25 year old patient with newly diagnosed schizophrenia has been suffering from an acute psychotic episode. He was started on haloperidol three weeks ago. His psychosis has slowly been improving, but now he seems more anxious and more restless. This is an example of a relapsing patient.
Extra info: It is more likely that this patient is suffering from akathisia than a lack of response to the antipsychotic. Thus an increase in dose is not warranted.
