As : As dr. Bunt stated, the most obvious symptoms of schizophrenia may ebb and tide over time. Obviously, when a person has an episode of psychosis (loss of touch with reality), their symptoms have worsened. With appropriate treatment it is anticipated that the symptoms will improve. The schizophrenia may appear to be in remission, until they move toward another episode of psychosis.

There are other mental health conditions which may present with symptoms that are similiar to those seen in schizophrenia. ...Read more
