Can schizophrenia be managed without medication?
Is schizophrenia manageable without medications, such as anti-psychotic medication?
Thank you for your question. I am a family doctor with special interest in Mental Health. In my experience, the chance of schizophrenia recovering without medications is less than 10% per year.
And the chance drops with the duration of the condition.
Example: the longer the condition, the chance of it recovering without medications drops.
