    Hello pfowler,

     

    With the right effective dose of medication, adherence to treatment, and a support network, as well as the commitment to developing and using coping skills, it's possible the long-term prognosis for someone diagnosed with schizophrenia will be good, and the hardship lessen.

     

    Regards,

    If you look up information on the internet about the prognosis for those with schizophrenia, I think you will find studies that show that sz often gets a little better with age.  It kindof eases off and stabilizes at a lower level.  Not so many peaks and valleys.  Best wishes.
