In brief: Schizoaffective
This a condition where mood is severely impaired and fluctuating from profound depression to anger, irritability and increased amount of energy with associated unrealistic perceptions of paranoia, hearing voices and agitation.
Treatment almost always requires at least two medications . If treated correctly and the person takes medication as prescribed the outcome is favorable.

In brief: Schizo-affective
Schizo-affective disorder (sad) is a psychiatric condition, which combines symptoms of schizophrenia (psychotic symptoms like paranoid delusions and hallucinations) and of bipolar disorder (depression or mania).
To be formally diagnosed with sad, however, one must have at least two weeks of psychotic symptoms in the absence of any mood disorders.

The word schizoaffective comes from schizophrenia and affective (disorder).
