Does using laptops/cells and such have a bad effect on schizophrenics?

they say anti psychotics block dopamine. but they also say using laptops and such causes dopamine. so is there a uniquely adverse effect on schizophrenics if they use laptops and cellphones and such too much?

but i’m more interested interested in the dopamine question.
