I don’t really understand what you are saying. …but im a schizophrenic that doesn’t take synthetic meds and kinda working for me but only in conjunction with other meds.

Maybe you should talk to a professional.

I hope that you are ok.

HI Catfish. What do you mean by this statement. You seem to think that there are “synthetic meds” and “nonsynthetic medications”. I’ve never heard of this distinction.

All medications are “manufactured” - so therefore are “synthetic” (since they are manufactured under carefully controlled conditions - which they have to be according to FDA regulations, so you know what you are getting.

Yeah well I medicate with marijuana which is not processed like most 'conventional ’ medications Its natural so not synthetic.

That helps? It’s pretty well known it worsens and even triggers the onset of schizophrenic symptoms
