  • I don't know the science behind it, but I can tell you that I have had 3 friends that are/were schizophrenic. 1 of them sadly killed himself a few years ago but the other 2 are leading normal lives and are no danger to anyone. I wouldn't even know they were schizophrenic if they hadn't told me. It can be dangerous if it is not treated properly but the drugs available to treat it are really good.
  • Yup, for the most part it is competely treatable. I to, have a few friends with this disease. As long as they know that they have a problem and take their meds they should be fine, but sometimes their thoughts are so derranged that they beleieve there is nothing wrong (or something else completlely off the wall) and refuse to take their meds. Thats what makes them dangerous.
  • Most people with schizophrenia who are NOT on the proper medication are only dangerous too themselves. Unfortuenatly it can be very hard to find the right medication and sometimes the brain gets used to a particular medication and they have to find a new medicine. The best way to stay safe is if you see someone very agitated let someone who is experienced handle it. As far as how they can hear voices. They have a chemical imbalance in the brain which causes sensory problems. BTW people with schizophrenia can have hallucianations with all of the senses. In otherwords they sometimes see, hear, taste, smell or feel things that aren't there.

  • people with schizophrenia do not hear voices in their head. they suffer from hallucinations that they think they hear a voice or whatever from an external source. they have delusions to where they think their christ, or they have delusions thinking that to truly free themselves from evil they have to cut their arms off. regardless, its logical to them so naturally if something seems logical to you, then its 'ok'. if something was not logical then it is either questionable or wrong. so if you think something is right, then anything is possible.
  • Most schizophrenia people believe its a spiritual voice yet can't have that voice read bible! I am schizophrenia and believe its myself talking after years! I was diagnosed at age 18 and now 21 and feel medication does not get rid of a delusion which is relationship with a teacher! I hope someday she'll be single again with return love to share!
  • cause theyre hallucinating those voices, i dont think being around them is dangerous, my sister has schizophrenia
  • What do you mean how? They just do. The how isnt important. The fact they do is wjat is important. Is it dangerous? It could be. It depends on what the voices tell them if they are talking that day.
