My diagnosis is schizophrenia I am on clozapine(for psychosis and intrusive thoughts) methylphenidate(for cognition and fighting anhedonia) and Brintellix.


My doc has also prescribed me divalproex sodium. Is it possible to figure out what is the specific thing he is trying to do by prescribing divalproex sodium and why I need it.

Since one of its uses is the treatment of mania, I would agree that it likely has to do with mood stabilisation. Have you been feeling particularly elevated or highly anxious?

The best path is of course to ask your doctor - part of your relationship should involve his explaining to you why he is adding new meds to your current regimen. It's difficult for us to answer this other than in general guesses as to what his motivation might be.
