Residual Schizophrenia 

Residual schizophrenia is often used as a term that describes a few symptoms of this condition. Those who exhibit fewer symptoms may have this stage of schizophrenia. This means that the psychosis is currently muted, but some other symptoms are present. These still resemble the symptoms that occur during the first stages of the illness, however, some could be muted. You can read more about schizophrenia here.

Some of the symptoms of residual schizophrenia include:

  • Conceptual disorganisation 
  • Constantly low levels of energy
  • Eccentric behaviour 
  • Frank vocalisations
  • Illogical thinking
  • Lack of emotions
  • Social withdrawal

If you suffer from schizophrenia and you’re in the residual stage, it’s likely that you will be trying to prevent a relapse. It’s also likely that you’ll be trying to manage your symptoms. While this stage still involves you having symptoms, they could be less active than they were previously. Life-long treatment, such as medication and therapy could be required.

There is schizophrenia help in Brayton, local and national organisations and charities can offer you the support you need. Please make sure you speak to your doctor if you are worried about your symptoms.
