Brahmi(Bacopa monnieri), an Ayurvedic herb has primarily been used to enhance cognitive ability, memory and learning skills. The researchers provide an assessment of a case study of schizophrenia in which add-on Brahmi extracts 500 mg/day for a period of one month resulted in reduction in psychopathology without any treatment-emergent adverse effect. Although preliminary, the case study suggests therapeutic efficacy of add-on Brahmi in schizophrenia, thus providing a new dimension of alternative medicines in managing Schizophernia.
