Meds + psychotherapy: Medication may be necessary if you are having psychotic episodes, but medication alone is not optimal care. Psychotherapy + medication is optimal. Find a psychiatrist or psychologist with expertise in treating psychotic conditions with psychotherapy. Many professionals lack the necessary training and experience-- find someone who does.
