Schizoaffective Disorder-Finding someone for “tough cases”

Asked by on with 1 answer:

Q. I am been suffering from scizoaffective disorder for almost seven years now. Though I am a higher functioning individual, both a teacher and an engineer, I hear voices constantly, and sometimes these episodes are extremely painful, and sometimes last for several days at a a time. My grandfather suffered this illness, saw numerous doctors, tried numerous medications, to no avail…he eventually took his own life. I also have seen numerous doctors and tried numerous medications, (Xyprexa, Lithium, etc…) to no avail. I am looking for a real specialist in this area; someone who has successfully treated “difficult” cases? Can you help me?

A.

I cannot recommend anyone specifically but you could check with the local universities for their recommendations. The universities may have local experts or maybe know of good referrals. Good luck.
