• Give patient education support and appropriate reassurance. The diagnosis generally has distressful implications, and so the patient and family require careful explanation and support. It should be pointed out that the majority of patients have little or no long-term problems. Even in mild cases, continuing care and medical supervision is important.

• Use a team approach where appropriate, including a consultant referral for diagnosis and collaborative support.

• Fully assess the patient's functional impairment and impact on home life, work and social activity. Involve the family in decision making.

• Make judicious use of pharmaceutical agents. For serious cases consultant collaboration is essential.

• Review the patient regularly, continually assessing progress and drug tolerance.
