Do you know what medicines he's taking? I would hope that it's an atypical anti-psychotic and not a traditional anti-psychotic like Thorazine or Haldol, which pretty much makes the person a zombie... Actually, if your boyfriend seems emotionless at times, it's probably not all the medicine. A main negative symptom of schizophrenia (a non-psychotic symptom that is present even when the patient isn't exhibiting psychotic symptoms) is withdrawal from loved ones and apathy. Some medicines make it worse, but some apathy will most likely always be present. Good luck, and God bless! I hope it works out for you! :angel:
