Schizophrenia board


Hey everyone. I just have a question about my diagnosis. I was originally diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia (believed people were following me, aliens were coming for me, felt like someone was watching me, etc.) & I was told I have some formal thought disorder although with the medication I'm on I feel fine & can speak fluently. Anyways, now my docs aren't sure if it is schizophrenia or schizo-affective disorder. I'm told I have affective issues as well as schizophrenic symptoms & went hypomanic a few months back & I used to feel really great before then & everything was memorable & nostalgic & felt just orgasmic & euphoric. I also have been depressed a great deal, but now I'm told that I'm suffering from some negative symptoms (I have been a recluse for nearly two years now) & have barely been able to get out of bed because I feel very little right now. I even lost the ability to speak at one point. I am taking 320 mg of Geodon, 200 mg of Seroquel, & some others that I forget. Anyways there was talk of putting me on Clozapine to help motivate me, etc. Help me feel less despondent which I am absolutely okay with, but my question is this does this sound more schizophrenic or schizo-affective? I know very little about schizo-affective disorder so some insight would be very helpful. Thanks a bunch.
