Approximately 7.5 million adults in the United States are affected by Schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a long-term mental disorder that is characterized by a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior. Symptoms of Schizophrenia include delusions, hallucinations, speech abnormalities, memory and concentration issues, disorganized behavior and lack of motivation.
Treatment for Schizophrenia include psychotherapy, cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy, specialty coordinated care and prescribed Antipsychotic medications. Medications for Schizophrenia include Chlorpromazine, Fluphenazine, Haloperidol, Perphenazine, Thioridazine, Thiothixene and Trifluoperazine.
Each prescribed medication contains negative side effects that include weight gain, sexual problems, drowsiness, dizziness, restlessness, dry mouth, constipation, nausea, blurred vision, low blood pressure, seizures and low white blood cell count.
