    Of course I don't know what your symptoms are/were or why you were diagnosed with schizophrenia.

    That's a legitimate concern. Glorydaz already mentioned asking for a second opinion. Or even a third or fourth if necessary. It's important to be correctly diagnosed to receive the right meds. But in the meantime, you need to continue what they're giving you.

    Yes, it is dangerous to stop med without Doctor's advice. I have done that and got severe rebuke from the doctors. I even switched to over the counter meds without notifying the doctor. I have done those kind of stupid things many times. I did not know I should not stop med without asking the doctor.

    I don't know.

    The original paranoid schizophrenia diagnosis years ago was because they thought that I was paranoid, not because they felt that I had schizophrenia. Apparently, they needed a diagnosis for what they wanted to give me or something, as far as I know. I do not know why someone would lie about that, but there may have been an insurance issue.

    I had entered a Mosque with the gospel and I shared with the Imam/Emam there, and I have read the Quran though I do not remember all of it.

    I wonder if in God's Book it is possible that I have never been diagnosed with Schizophrenia. When I was asked by the Police I did say that I have not. I don't accept it or in God's Book morality and things that could or might be against me it never happened. I did not do anything to elicit a diagnosis.

    Schizophrenia is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. A patient suffering with it cannot make a self diagnosis. If a doctor prescribes medication to control it, don't stop taking it! It is an illness that needs medication control very much like diabetes. Without proper treatment it can cause you and those around you misery. I have a sister who has schizophrenia. She has learned the hard way to keep taking her medicines as her doctor has prescribed them.

    I would like the 2nd, 3rd, 4th opinion as I do not believe that I have schizophrenia. I do not know if my case is unique. I believe that I do fine without medication, but people believe that there are cycles where if something goes wrong like making or trying to make a life choice (asking the police for help with my living situation) and leave sin and a sinful environment in the past, the cycle continues where people say it was because there was no medication.
