Schizoaffective disorder is a persistent mental illness characterized largely by schizophrenia symptoms like hallucinations or delusions, as well as mood disorder symptoms like mania and sadness. The prefix “schizo” alludes to schizophrenia’s psychotic effects on a person’s thinking, self-awareness, and perceptions.

The suffix “effective” alludes to significant mood swings, energy fluctuations, and behavioral shifts.

Treatment for Schizoaffective Disorder

It is easy to misdiagnose schizoaffective disorder because its symptoms are similar to those displayed during bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Schizoaffective disorder is less researched than schizophrenia and bipolar, but DeLand Treatment Solutions therapists provide the most cutting-edge, community-centered, holistic treatment available.

Symptoms of Schizoaffective Disorder

The symptoms of schizoaffective disorder are often severe. The following are some of the most prevalent schizoaffective disorder symptoms:

Symptoms of Schizoaffective Disorder

  • Delusions are false, fixed beliefs that persist despite contrary facts.
  • Extreme hallucinations: seeing or hearing things that don’t exist.
  • Thinking is disorganized: changing topics and giving responses that are irrelevant to the questions
  • Depressive state: sadness, emptiness, and feelings of worthlessness

Manic conduct includes feelings of euphoria, racing thoughts, increased risky behavior, and other manic symptoms.

Diagnosis of Schizoaffective Disorder

Schizoaffective disorder is sometimes difficult to diagnose. A person suffering from schizoaffective disorder exhibits symptoms of schizophrenia as well as symptoms of depression or bipolar disorder. Schizoaffective disorder is classified into two types: depressive and bipolar. To be diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder a person must exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Severe mood disorders – either sadness or mania – occur along with symptoms of schizophrenia.
  • In the absence of a significant mood episode, hallucinations and delusions persist for at least two weeks.
  • Symptoms associated with a major mood episode remain present during most of the course of the illness.
  • Medications or adverse effects do not cause symptoms.

Co-occurring Disorders and Schizoaffective Disorder

Schizoaffective disorder is a relatively uncommon psychiatric condition. Men and women get schizoaffective disorder at comparable rates. But, in men, this disease develops early and symptoms start appearing.

Schizoaffective illness can be adequately controlled with appropriate medication and psychotherapy. People with schizoaffective disorder are at higher risk for substance use disorders. Individuals suffering from schizoaffective disorder require comprehensive treatment and therapy in a mental health treatment facility such as DeLand Treatment Solutions.
