Main indication for antipsychotic medication is the treatment of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Influential protocols in the treatment of schizophrenia recommend the use of antipsychotics in monotherapy. In case of therapy resistance, combination of antipsychotics is a feasible option. Applying antipsychotics in combination is common in clinical practice, although existing efficacy and safety data concerning antipsychotic combinations are scarce. Authors, after reviewing existing scientific data, make attempt to give recommendations for combined antipsychotic therapy in everyday clinical practice.
