How effective is electroconvulsive therapy in treating those with active psychosis?


If someone is actively psychotic, having hallucinations, delusions, and out of touch with reality, will elctroconvulsive therapy help them come out of it?

    To my knowledge (which obviously is not very vast and actually bookish), you can try to balance the electrolytes and administer mild sedatives.
