I had a schizophrenic housemate for two years at university. He was prescribed prozac to help control it. He is a really nice guy and very bright, but it was difficult to see how he changed towards the end of each day as the medications wore off. Very bright, very friendly guy, but I know he's struggled to find a way to have a life outside of sheltered accommodation. He's been institutionalized a couple of times, it's very hard.
