Sufferers can go into remission which essentially means that their symptoms have been moderated or dealt with to such a degree that they can function adequately or perfectly w…ell while or while not provided treatment afterwards. But Schizophrenia is a lifelong mental illness which a person may never fully recover and of course, no matter how small the chances there, there is always the possibility of relapse.
As of now, we know no cure for schizophrenia, though it can be treated and controlled through anti-psychotics.
Antipsychotic medications are the most effective treatment for schizophrenia. They change the balance of chemicals in the brain and can help control symptoms. These medication…s are usually helpful, but they can cause side effects. Many side effects can be managed, and they should not prevent you from seeking treatment for this serious condition. Common side effects from antipsychotics may include: Dizziness Feelings of restlessness or "jitters" Sleepiness (sedation) Slowed movements Tremor Weight gain Long-term use of antipsychotic medications may increase your risk for a movement disorder called tardive dyskinesia. This condition causes repeated movements that you cannot control, especially around the mouth. Call your health care provider right away if you think you may have this condition. When schizophrenia does not improve with several antipsychotics, the medication clozapine can be helpful. Clozapine is the most effective medication for reducing schizophrenia symptoms, but it also tends to cause more side effects than other antipsychotics. Schizophrenia is a life-long illness. Most people with this condition need to stay on antipsychotic medication for life. SUPPORT PROGRAMS AND THERAPIES Supportive therapy may be helpful for many people with schizophrenia. Behavioral techniques, such as social skills training, can be used to improve social and work functioning. Job training and relationship-building classes are important. Family members of a person with schizophrenia should be educated about the disease and offered support. Programs that offer outreach and community support services can help people who lack family and social support. Family members and caregivers are often encouraged to help people with schizophrenia stay with their treatment. It is important that the person with schizophrenia learns how to: Take medications correctly and manage side effects Notice the early signs of a relapse and what to do if symptoms return Cope with symptoms that occur even while taking medication (a therapist can help) Manage money Use public transportation
No it does not.
There are cures for mental sickness yet psychiatrists and psychologists don't actually know how to cure schizophrenia. They say they can only control it.
Thee is no cure for schizophrenia at present, but there are some effective treatment options.
Paranoid schizophrenia cannot be cured. However, it can be treated with medication to relieve the symptoms.
Yes. Yes. Yes
Not that I know of because it is i think caused by curtain parts of your brain not connecting like nerves in your brain I think
Generally the answer is No, though some argue that it is technically possible with proper therapy and medicine. In any case, there can be great benefit in managing the disease…, and some people are able to return to their careers and live generally "normal" (nobody's life is really "normal", is it?), productive lives. Overwhemlingly this seems to be with the use of medications. Some people recommend harboring a great deal of hope that they can "beat" the disease, or that there will be a medical cure, and strive for the goal of "self-cure" as a way to motivate themselves to seek improvement in quality of life. Others might say that this orientation is setting oneself up for disappointment when the person hits a bump in the road or has an embarrassing episode. In either case that it is important to recognize the fact that for most people it is a lifelong condition that needs to be carefully managed. Schizophrenia is associated with genetic (your DNA and family history) and environmental factors (like trauma or major stress), neither of which are your fault. There is research that shows that schizophrenia sets in when the brain is physically altered- the spaces inside are larger than in most people's brain. There are also chemical changes to neurotransmitters and other chemicals in the brain. Medications are designed to rebalance those chemicals which are "out of whack". There is a TON of unknown data about schizophrenia and the last decade ("the decade of the brain") shed more light on the disease than was ever known in all of time before that. So there is in fact lots of hope for better prevention and better management, possibly even a cure! The point is to live your life the best you can. Create alliance with those who are there to help you do that, and with other people who are trying to do what you are trying to do. Believe in yourself and your ability to adjust and improve. You really don't have to be alone. Even websites like this allow you to connect with other people and discuss life in general. Good luck to those of you with schizophrenia.
It treats it, but doesn't cure it.
There is no true "cure" for schizophrenia. However, the antipsychotic effects of the first antipsychotic drug, chlorpromazine, were discovered in 1952.
