Antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and antipsychotic medications are often combined to treat schizophrenia. The decision is best made by the treating psychiatrist and the patient.

Abilify and Zyprexa are both antipsychotic medications. Prozac and Wellbutrin are both antidepressants. Antidepressants and antipsychotics are helpful for some one who has psychosis with depressive symptoms.
