Schizophrenia Schizophrenic

Schizophrenia is a serious brain disorder. It is a disease that makes it difficult for a person to tell the difference between real and unreal experiences, to think logically, to have normal emotional responses to others, and to behave normally in social situations.

During an acute episode of schizophrenia, hospitalization is often required to promote safety, and to provide for the person’s basic needs such as food, rest, and hygiene.

Antipsychotic or neuroleptic medications work by changing the balances of chemicals in the brain and are used to control the symptoms of schizophrenia.
