    • Environmental Triggers- Studies show that stress-inducing factors such as exposure to viral infections, low oxygen levels during the birth, early parental loss, bad-tempered and stressful experiences can cause schizophrenia.
    • Chemical imbalances in the brain– Experts believe that abnormalities in the brain structure or abnormal brain chemistry also causes schizophrenia. Studies also show that the brain structure of schizophrenics is quite different than it was at the time of birth.

The soon you start the drug abuse, the more likely there is a chance of you getting the symptoms of schizophrenia such as delusions, hallucinations, inappropriate emotions, and trouble in thinking.
