Illness Patterns in Schizophrenia

Illness Patterns in Schizophrenia

Topic Overview

Schizophrenia typically follows a predictable pattern, which usually develops within the first 5 years of illness. Before that, psychotic episodes may be difficult to predict. The pattern of illness often stays the same throughout your lifetime, although it can change.

  • Some people have only one or two psychotic episodes. Others have psychotic episodes throughout their lives.
  • Many people have short relapses. A few have severe symptoms all the time.
  • Some people have relapses only during stressful times in their lives.
  • Some have more psychotic episodes as they grow older. Some have fewer.
