Dr. Pamela Pappas answered

Both are serious: Both of these illnesses are serious and require ongoing psychiatric treatment. Out of control, either than severely disrupt a person's life and relationships. Perhaps schizoaffective disorder may be a little more complicated, because the person still has psychotic symptoms even when no active mood problem is expressing itself. So, the medications needed may be more.
