The results of Wunderink et al 's trial support the experience of most practising psychiatrists: guided discontinuation of antipsychotics works for some patients, but most stay in remission only with carefully tailored and monitored maintenance treatment at the 'lowest effective dose'. It is important to review maintenance annually and to discuss with patients whether dose reduction/ discontinuation should be attempted.
