Understanding Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that affects about 1% of Americans. The first episodes usually occur between a person's late teens and mid-thirties.

People with schizophrenia have a range of symptoms, including delusions and hallucinations. That could mean they think that
others are trying to hurt them or hear voices that aren't there. Sometimes people with schizophrenia seem fine until they talk
about what they are really thinking.

Since many people with schizophrenia have difficulty holding a job or taking care of themselves, they often rely on other people.
This can have a financial and emotional impact on their friends and family. Despite all this, treatment can help manage many symptoms of schizophrenia.

Causes

While the specific cause of schizophrenia is not yet known, it's thought to be caused, at least in part, by an imbalance of chemicals found in the brain. Some research suggests that it may run in families.

Diagnosis

There is no specific laboratory test or procedure that reveals schizophrenia. The doctor may first review the patient’s medical history and, sometimes, the medical history of the patient’s family. Most importantly, the doctor will base a diagnosis on symptoms, including symptoms the patient has had in the past, particularly if the patient has experienced symptoms over a period of 6 months.

Important Safety Information: An increased risk of stroke and ministroke have been reported in clinical studies of elderly people with dementia-related psychosis.
