Explanation: I am a 28 year old male with a 45 year old paranoid schizophrenic mother she was diagnosed at 18 my father had no mental illness. I currently have been taking medicine since high school I started at 16 taking seroquel and Prozac eventually got put on Abilify 2.5 mg a day ...Abilify I have been ok for the last four years with these meds. I just came off Abilify a week ago and Iím wondering if itís the weed or the medicine thatís causing me to have symptoms of schizophrenia....I am diagnosed with Pure O and intrusive thoughts because I have had an immense fear of becoming schizophrenic due to my mother. Iím 28 now never been diagnosed with schizophrenia... i just have always been obsessed and tormented by intrusive thoughts for instance I will think about the idea that a camera could be watching me in the shower but I donít actually hide out and fear a camera is there I know this would be crazy and impossible right? But the thought of it goes through my head over and over and I start questioning what if it could be true and I am crazy and I am going schizophrenic. I quit smoking at 18 cause of fear of triggering schizophrenia . my question would be could the weed have caused me to trigger late onset schizophrenia I was always told that the brain matured at 25 so as long as I donít start weed u til after that it wonít cause schizophrenia so Iím worried if itís me being off Abilify or maybe I triggered it. Please help me what caused this am I losing it
