Other Conditions With Symptoms Similar to Schizophrenia
Other conditions can cause similar symptoms as schizophrenia, such as hallucinations. But having similar symptoms doesn't mean that you have schizophrenia. When similar symptoms are caused by other conditions, they are often related to a specific situation and go away when treated.
Other conditions that can cause symptoms similar to those of schizophrenia include:
Poor interaction of combined medicines. Taking several prescription medicines that interact with each other can lead to hallucinations and other symptoms that are similar to the positive symptoms of schizophrenia.
Even if you don't have schizophrenia, you need to see a health professional if you experience any symptoms that are similar to those of the positive symptoms of schizophrenia.
