I've hear of cases where it goes away on its own, but I'm sorry to say I wouldn't count on it. For now, your best bet is medication. Are you on anything now?

zyprexa
My boyfriend is on zyprexa 5mg and at first claimed that it was for adhd but when i looked it up it was a treatment for schizophrehia - i asked him to be honest with me and he said that he had a mild form of schizophrenia.I would appreciate more information. I don't think he displays any symptoms and he has a good job and social life, but I'm worried that I wont know what to look for. I do talk to him about ity but worry that he thinks he can't tell me the truth as i'll be frightened off - this is not the case as i think he's smashing!!
I have also read about the long term side affects of this dgrug and wornder if there are any alternatives or if this is the only long term solution.
How can I approach this with all the facts? Please help
