In brief: Antipsychotics

Schizophreniform disorder is, essentially, the early stages of schizophrenia, with symptoms lasting no more than 6 months and not necessarily causing major impairment.
About 1/3 recover within 6 months; the remaining 2/3 go on to a diagnosis of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder..
