Schizophrenia can be a debilitating disorder without adequate treatment.
People who have this disease may have hallucinations in which they see, feel, smell or hear things that aren't really there. These can take the form of voices, shadows, people, creatures, almost anything that you can imagine. These hallucinations can be very confusing for people with schizophrenia because they do not necessarily know the difference between the hallucination and reality.more about Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia can be a debilitating disorder without adequate treatment. People who have this disease may have hallucinations in which they see, feel, smell or hear things that aren't really there. These can take the form of voices, shadows, people, creatures, almost anything that you can imagine. These hallucinations can be very confusing for people with schizophrenia because they do not necessarily know the difference between the hallucination and reality. The most common type of hallucination is hearing voices. These may tell someone to do things or make comments about their behaviors, or the person may hear multiple voices that seem to talk to each other.
People with schizophrenia may also believe in things that are not true. They may think that they have special talents or abilities, like the power to read minds or to see into the future. It's common for people with schizophrenia to believe that other people, the government, or aliens are watching them or are somehow "out to get them." These particular types of beliefs are known as paranoid delusions and can lead someone with schizophrenia to act in very strange ways. In general, people with schizophrenia continue to hold on these false beliefs despite other people trying to prove that they are not true.
Schizophrenia also causes people to have odd ways of speaking at times. They may use words that don't make sense or make up their own words. There may also seem to be a disconnect between what a person with schizophrenia is talking about and their emotions. They may laugh or cry at seemingly inappropriate times.
People with schizophrenia may also lose common abilities as part of their disease. They may no longer be able to show any emotions, may not be able to take pleasure in things they once enjoyed, may no longer be able to carry out simple tasks from start to finish, and may even lose the ability to speak or move altogether. These loses can make someone with schizophrenia almost entirely dependent on other people and can severely lower their quality of life.
There are several treatment options available for people with schizophrenia. Many of the medications available reduce delusions and hallucinations within a matter of days. With continued treatment, the bizarre speech and behaviors are reduced significantly. The most difficult part of successfully treating schizophrenia is finding the medication that provides the best results and the fewest side effects. The doctors here at CNS Healthcare have been working with the latest treatment options for the past 15 years. If you, or someone you know, are struggling to find the right treatment for schizophrenia, see how the programs at CNS Healthcare can help.
Commonly prescribed anti-psychotic medications are: Abilify, Geodon, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Risperdal, Prolixin, and more.
