Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
A chronic condition means that the condition is persistent. The low dose means that the dose MAY be enough to control the condition. If it is not controlling the condition then either the drug dosage is too low, or the drug is not appropriate or effective for the condition.
The low dosage is good enough to control the condition. Does that mean the person has a mild case of the condition?
What is the condition, what is the drug, and what is the dose?
condition is schizoaffective dissorder medication is navane 2 mg twice a day
how much navane?
2 mg two times a day
That is a very low dose, like an initial dose. If it is controlling the psychotic episodes then it is working, or there are not many psychotic episodes.
Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between schizoaffective disorder and major depressive disorder with psychotic breaks.
Back to your original question:
The condition seems to be mild.
