Recently, it was pointed out that the solutions found in the literature for the space fractional Schrodinger equation in a piecewise manner are wrong, except the case with the delta potential. We re-analyze this problem and show that an exact and a proper treatment of the relevant integral prove otherwise. We also discuss effective potential approach and present a free particle solution for the space and time fractional Schrodinger equation in general coordinates in terms of Fox's H-functions.
