 Diagnosis, prognosis and treatment

Diagnosis, prognosis and treatment
The first schizophrenic episode typically occurs between the ages of fif{*filter*} and thirty.
Men typically develop the symptoms five to ten years earlier than women. In about a third
of the cases, the patient will suffer a psychotic episodes for a few months and then make
a complete recovery without treatment.

Treatments which are now considered ineffective include psychosurgery, electroconvulsive
therapy, and insight-oriented psychoanalysis.

When trying to withdraw from many psychiatric {*filter*}, patients can develop serious and even
life-threatening emotional and physical reactions. In short, it is dangerous not only to
start taking psychiatric {*filter*} but also can be hazardous to stop taking them. Therefore,
withdrawal from psychiatric {*filter*} should be done under clinical supervision. Principles of
drug withdrawal are discussed in Your Drug May Be Your Problem: How and Why to Stop Taking
Psychiatric Medications.
information on Prozac and Prozac-like {*filter*} can be found in Talking Back to Prozac by
Peter R. Breggin, M.D. and Ginger Ross Breggin.

DSM IV is the fabrication upon which
psychiatry seeks acceptance by medicine
in general. Insiders know it is more
a political than scientific document.
To its credit it says so
