What can happen if shared psychotic disorder is untreated?

ANSWER

If not treated, shared psychotic disorders can become an ongoing problem. People with a delusional disorder often don't realize that they need treatment and may choose not to take prescribed medications.

With treatment, a person with a shared psychotic disorder often may have a good chance for recovery.
