Can a person be diagnosed by ASPD and schizophrenia simultaneously

Is this thing possible and can a psychiatrist diagnose a person with these two diagnoses?

I think so. I think someone else on the forum had those 2 diagnoses at the same time. They’re very different diseases so I don’t see why you couldn’t have both

Yes it is very possible to have both diagnosis. If a patient has conduct disorder up till the age of 18 the diagnosis is changed to ASPD. You can have a personality disorder and still have schizophrenia.

I used to work at a facility that only treated people diagnosed with both.

Edit: nevermind, i thought this said ASD.
