Is there some kind of medication which is the opposite of an anti-psychotic?  Is that called a pro-psychotic?  What would happen if you gave these patients that?  

Is there a medication, if given to a knocked-over elephant, would cause the beast to stand and resume his elephantine existence?  And what if one were to go to a rave (noun: a lively party or gathering involving hipsters dancing and such) distribute the pro-psychotic in order to induce the state of apparent madness intentionally?  The possibilities are endless and all tend toward cheerful absurdity.
