Many of you have worked with people diagnosed with psychosis. My parents placed me on antipsychotics and I don't know if I can have a successful return to mathematics. Is treated psychosis worse than untreated psychosis for mathematics and philosophy?

    This should REALLY be discussed with medical professionals. Perhaps THEY can offer to alter the medication or the dosage. – Boaty Mcboatface Oct 23 '19 at 19:50

    Most people here have worked with proofs and computers, not with people. – Thomas Oct 23 '19 at 19:52

    It seems to me this question is about the treatment of psychosis, and that academia is not actually relevant, so I voted to close as off topic. E.g. boat programming. – Anonymous Physicist Oct 23 '19 at 20:43

    I disagree with the close-votes. This is clearly not primarily about the treatment of psychosis, but about the question how the detrimental effect of the side-effects of the treatment on the ability to function in academia compares to the detrimental effect of an untreated psychosis. This is something a physician is not necessarily qualified to answer, but academics with a history of psychosis would be best suited for. – Arno Oct 23 '19 at 22:01
