Is there a way Schizo can present itself as more OCD symptoms? I have been diagnosed with OCD for years but have had horrendous luck with the meds. I have been unsure about trying any more anti-psychotics as I tried Abilify/Risperidone/Seroquel. I gained a substantial amount of weight (around 55 pounds) and then started being a couch potato and not caring about working out or personal hygiene at all. I've since lost 35 of those pounds, but the symptoms of Schizo/Paranoid OCD symptoms are returning. My symptoms are colors seeming to correlate with moods, mindsets, and intentions such as red being something coming at me that is angry and volatile ready to challenge me in some way. Ink cartridges seem impossible not to check when I am writing and taking notes in college and I am frequently preoccupied with worries and intrusive thoughts I cannot control seemingly telling me to act and behave differently as compared to those around me. What could be going on? Is this more psychosis

It is not possible to make a diagnosis of any psychiatric condition or even offer a second opinion just based on limited history as presented here.

Hence you should consult a psychiatrist properly in person which can help to decide on the further management.

I hope this helps.
