Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the relationship between depression and the negative symptoms of schizophrenia. Are they very similar? Also, does anyone have any thoughts on an antidepressant called Arima. I've just been on it for about a week and it doesn't seem to have any effect on me, positive or negative. (I am also on antipsychotic medication). To me, negative symptoms such as apathy, loss of pleasure, and loss of energy, seem almost exactly the same as the symptoms of depression, which is probably why I have been placed on antidepressant medication as well. I'm not sure thje distinction really matters but am just curious to know, and is there any particular term for epople who have schizophrenia and depression together?
