Schizophrenia and movement disorders
My son, now 26, has been dealing with negative symptoms not schizophrenia for nine years. He has been on several antipsychotic medications, most recent is clozapine, for the last four years. Increasing mannerisms have been occurring, touching of the hair and face, looking up, and constant hand movements. On some occasions his arm will fly up. He masks the behaviors well by constantly moving and getting up but I know he is in nonstop turmoil. I want to help him to relax. I feel he has never gotten the proper treatment.
