Know All About Schizophrenia


A smooth functioning life, away from any chronic disease or disorder, is something that we all want. But a few percent of the total population is deprived of this simple want of life. And hence, people who have schizophrenia cannot enjoy the essence of life. Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder in which the person cannot think, feel or behave clearly. The person behaves abnormally, and hence, this interrupts daily life activities. The treatment here is life-long, which includes schizophrenia medications too.

Know All About Schizophrenia



But before heading towards the conclusion, it’s essential to know the causes and the signs of schizophrenia. Though the exact cause of schizophrenia is still not known, here are some of the primary external factors which hold responsible for the cause of schizophrenia: -

Genetics: - 

Genes play a significant role in causing schizophrenia. If someone in your family or a very close relative is suffering from the disease, you are most likely to suffer from the same. 

Pregnancy or birth complications: -

There are a lot of complications that a woman has to go through before and during birth. Such complications include low birth weight, infection, breathing problems, premature labour and schizophrenia. Even women with this mental disorder are at an increased risk for complications during pregnancy. 

Childhood trauma: -

Severe childhood trauma is also considered to be a contributing factor in developing schizophrenia. A healthy childhood has a lot to do in deciding an individual’s personality and mental health.

Usage of drugs: -

Consumption of drugs such as cannabis, LSD, heroin, cocaine, and other similar medicines can trigger the symptoms of schizophrenia for those who are at a higher risk.

Chemical changes in the brain: -

A series of certain chemicals called neurotransmitters are responsible for sending signals between the brain cells. Low levels or imbalances between these chemicals might play an essential role in developing schizophrenia. 

Early signs and symptoms

Once we know the deriving causes, it’s time to get aware of the early signs and symptoms. The below-mentioned are the symptoms of schizophrenia: -

  • Hallucinations

  • Disorganized thinking

  • Delusions

  • Lack of motivation

  • Slow movement

  • Change in sleeping pattern

  • Poor grooming or hygiene

  • Change in behaviour or body language. 


There is no permanent cure for schizophrenia. The treatment goes life-long. However, the symptoms can be eliminated if the treatment starts at an early stage. Below mentioned are the primary treatments for schizophrenia: -

Medications: -

There are various medications for schizophrenia that affect brain chemistry. These medications are also available online. Make sure before you get any medications for schizophrenia, you must consult your doctor first. 

Psychosocial therapy: -

Some therapies help you manage such mental disorders. It’s always the best option to stay in constant touch with your psychiatrist or therapist to get the proper guidance.

Coordinated specialty care: -

This is a special kind of treatment that includes both medication and psychosocial therapy. It tends to add family integration, education, employment, and counseling. This kind of treatment tends to reduce symptoms and improve the quality of life. 


Schizophrenia is a chronic mental illness. The treatment is a long-term process. Hence, it is essential to understand the early signs and take a step forward. It is also necessary for the family, friends, and other close ones to be extremely patient with the person suffering. Remember, strong support and some kindness can contribute a lot to the entire process of healing.
