Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental disorder, characterized by delusions, hallucinations, and other cognitive problems. It affects a person’s thinking, behavior, and feelings. People suffering from this disease might seem to have lost touch of the reality. It usually occurs in late adolescence or early adulthood, that is between 16 to 30 years of age. Genetic inheritance, imbalance of dopamine and serotonin in the brain, trauma before birth, and viral infections are thought to cause schizophrenia. Its symptoms include an unusual way of thinking, hallucinations, delusions, lack of motivation, movement disorder, trouble paying attention, and reduced facial expressions and emotions. The drugs used to treat schizophrenia are Risperidone, Olanzapine, Quetiapine, Ziprasidone, Clozapine, and Haloperidol.
