My first psychosis I never had paranoia, only religious delusions and hallucinations. They diagnosed me with psychosis nos 10mg Abilify. My negative symptoms were better than now even on same meds. I quit meds for 2yrs after 4yrs of being on them, then I started experiencing paranoia for the first time in my life and they changed my diagnosis to sz, negatives got worse
