In brief: Schizophrenia sympts

Acute schizophrenia symptoms include hallucinations, delusions (usually paranoia, ideas of reference, thought insertion or withdrawal), agitation, isolation, flat affect, thought disorganization.
All of these symptoms can be present in other psychosis including mania, psychotic depression drug induced (i've had pts on mj who looked like schizophrenia) early treatment is essential for good outcome.
