In reality, it is often not the case that specific symptoms are linked to defined diseases. For example, individuals with traumatic disorders, infectious diseases, metabolic conditions or even those under the influence of certain substances can present with symptoms that occur in schizophrenia [11, 12]. In addition, it is not uncommon for a diagnosis to change over time. A long-term study found significant changes in diagnosis from major depressive disorder to bipolar disorder and schizophrenia [13] and another found that only half of the patients stayed on their initial diagnosis [14].

Drugs which target other hormone systems have also been tested as a novel means of treating schizophrenia symptoms. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), an adrenal steroid-like compound, has been tested as a potential addon therapeutic with antipsychotics and this led to improvements in depression and anxiety symptoms in some schizophrenia patients [73]. Furthermore, treatment with the selective estrogen receptor modulator raloxifene resulted in reduced negative symptoms in postmenopausal females with schizophrenia compared to controls [74].
