Clinical Characteristics of Patients With Schizophrenia Who Successfully Discontinued Antipsychotics: A Literature Review
I went into remission in 2007 and came off my meds for five years and did ok without them.
But then I relapsed in 2012 and have been on meds ever since
Don’t think I will cope without them anymore
I heard if one relapses then there’s greater risk of more relapses in future. Don’t know how true it is.
The man think that,after he take medication after the first onset of sz,he will comes back to his natural life,practices all kind of the human behavior,
Despite the obvious improvement in the symptoms ,but he sees this is not enough to living the life as he was before the sz, after the path of one month,3 months,6 months,one year …etc the improvement does reach the degree of complete recovery at all
Just one thing if it can be treated and removed he will feel recovery at once,but that is not happen whatever the type of med ,dose or time !
I get suicidal thoughts if I stop meds.
Do anything to keep your life
I won’t stop taking mine. I always relapse into depression and psychosis. It is interesting that there are people who can stop ta king them and remain well. More info needs to be obtained as bout this to see what makes them so special.
In the case if the Sz is a common genetic disease:
The medication will be taking for forever without hope in recovery (no exception)
Because the path of Sz is different about the path of common genetic disease,there is real hope even if does not reach to the degree of full recovery !!
If many people with sz stop taking med and they feel the improvement ,this is the evidence which proof that sz is not genetic disease in nature,because if you stop take medication for genetic disease you can not stay at the life for many years (10-20-30 or 40…etc) !
There one single cause for sz and there is hundred causes for improvement ,the first of all how you can living your life and enjoy with it even in the existence of the schizophrenia and all its symptoms inside your psychological world
