Question?: Autism Signs And Symptoms

Mandy asks…

How can you tell if a young man has schizophrenia?

Just wondering – The same young man has depression and AD-HD. He takes special classes.

As he is talking, he’ll look in another direction, as if he is looking at something past you. He stays focus on it and doesn’t make eye contact.
Also, on one occasion I walked in on him talking to him self, facing a wall.

Symptoms of schizophrenia usually emerge during adolescence or early adulthood and may appear suddenly or develop gradually. When symptoms develop gradually, they may be misdiagnosed with other conditions with similar symptoms, such as bipolar disorder or substance abuse (which commonly occurs with schizophrenia).

Question?: Schizophrenia In Children

John asks…

What are my odds of getting schizophrenia? What about my children?

My Grandmother had it, 2 of my Uncles have it, 3 people have commited suicide in my mom’s immediate family, and now my 21 year old brother is showing signs of schizophrenia. I’m 25 and worried in the near future it can happen to me also. I might even pass it to my children.

admin answers:

You have around 5% chance of getting it, if you have it then 10% for your children, if not then only 2%
Know the early warning signs and be careful of yourself

Question?: Schizophrenia Medication

Joseph asks…

Can a person live with schizophrenia without medication?

Schizophrenia runs in my family, and I’m starting to hallucinate..at least I think I am. I see flashes in the corner of my eyes every day. I sometimes see things that aren’t there, rarely, and sometimes I hear things, rarely though. If this is early signs of schizophrenia, could I live with it without medication? Because I know these are hallucinations and not real.

admin answers:

If the symptoms are mild and you can still function well enough in your work, school or other daily activities, you might be able to go without medication.

If the symptoms get worse, to where it really impairs your ability to function, you will probably have to be on medication.

Quite honestly, almost everybody with this diagnosis needs to be on medication.

The vitamins and colon cleansing aren’t really going to help.
