Transcript of Schizophrenia

Facts
You can develop it at anytime but it is most commonly developed while you are a teen or in early adulthood, from ages 16-30.
It affects men and women at the same pace, but it tends to be in men earlier then in women.
Childhood schizophrenia is rare and can be hard to tell apart from other developmental problems in childhood, such as autism.
Treatment
While having schizophrenia you may have to be contained in the hospital for safety reasons. Anti psychotic medications are the most effective treatment. They change the balance of chemicals in the brain and can help control symptoms. But there are side effects.

Paranoia
During the early phases of drug treatment, patients may be troubled by side effects such as drowsiness, restlessness, muscle spasms, tremor, dry mouth, or blurring of vision. The patient may also have thoughts of suicide. Most of these can be fixed by lowering the dosage or can be controlled by other medications. Different patients have different treatment responses and side effects to various anti-psychotic drugs. A patient may do better with one drug than another.
