depot IM fluphenazine is one drug. But usually, we don't give oral meds because they don't take the medicines and this causes relapse of the Sx. Answer Intra muscular meds.

He is right for noncomplicant schizo's you use depot drugs...there are 4..Haloperidol...fluphenazine...Resperidone...Pali peridone...Although they each have different administration based on how long they last..I doubt they 'll ask that in step2..>So just knowing these are enough...
