Is recovery possible?
Reason For Relapse
People with schizophrenia sometimes quit their medications because of side effects or not understanding their illness. Many times, individual experiences chronic anxiety due to uncertainties, day-to-day stressors of life and familial expectations. This raises the risk of serious symptoms returning, which can lead to a psychotic episode (in which someone loses touch with reality).
A thorough evaluation is required for diagnosing Schizophrenia disorder and often includes an assessment by a Psychiatrist and a clinical Psychologist. Treatment consists of mainly Medications and Psycho-social management.
