    You need to see a doctor about this.

    Cannabis is not a drug that you can self-medicate with to prevent psychosis.

    The word psychosis is often used without a real knowledge of what it means. You can read up on it here:

    drugs to treat medically diagnosed psychosis would only be available on prescription, and if you have been diagnosed with some sort mental illness such as schizophrenia, i'm surprised you havent been prescribed something already ?

    well there obviously are treatments for psychosis, anti psychotics for example. but like sid said, if someone's been diagnosed as psychotic then theyre gonna be put on medication, not just left to fend for themselves and find illegal substances to help them.

    anyway it says it all in the article really.

    SCHIZOPHRENIA - Are there actually any people out there with this, and if so I desperately need to know if they have managed to have any normal loving intimate relationships with people, as I am in love with a man who suffers from schizophrenia.

    why not start your own thread regarding this?

    this one is well and truly dead.

    If there's anything more important than my ego around here, i want it caught and shot now
