    My brother was intelligent, then became mentally retarded

    He was quite intelligence. Then during middle school he was bullied and that caused him a lot of emotional pain and stress. During 14 his intelligence degenerated until he was mentally retarded. What happened? The doctors said it was schizophrenia, but that doesn't cause severe mental retardation.

    No injury, no illness. He is/was on drugs for schizophrenia, but he didn't start taking them until long after signs of his mental degeneration. He has been through a ct scan and a MRI, nothing found wrong in either.
