Schizophrenia and Its Treatments

Schizophrenia and its Medication?s Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder which affects one person of every hundred, both men and women alike (Nichols, 1). It usually develops in a persons late teens or early twenties, though it sometimes (rarely) starts in middle age or even much later into a persons life (Nichols, 1). The earlier this problem starts, the more potential it has to harm the persons personality and their life (Nichols, 2). It makes working, studying, relating to other people, and living an independent life extremely hard to deal with. ?Before 1950, most all people with schizophrenia spent most of there lives in mental hospitals away from home? (Nichols, 2). ?But things have changed since then, now most all people with the illness live outside of a hospital and live ?normal? lives, holding jobs, having friends, and making long lasting relationships? (Driedger, 2). Drug treatment has come a long way in helping people reduce their problem of schizophrenia. But even with the use of drugs, schizophrenia may never be cleared up entirely. No-one knows the cause of schizophrenia. ?Approximately one in ten people with schizophrenia have a parent that had the illness
