I have read numerous different papers each claiming that antipsychotic medication either helps maintain brain volume or causes brain volume reduction in patients with schizophrenia and other psychotic psychiatric disorders. I have to admit that I am confused on this subject. What is the clinically accepted position on brain volume and antipsychotic medication?
