I believe schizoaffective disorder is an illness unto itself. This becomes most obvious with the bipolar subtype. Here, the psychosis is not associated with depression.

I have seen it up close a few times. These people expressed a predictable pattern of affective and cognitive impairments.

normal -> manic -> schizoid psychosis -> depression -> normal.

One person was able to avoid triggering the cycle by using Xanax (alprazolam) to prevent the mania.

Although not currently in vogue here, I believe it is important to identify what disorder you are treating rather than treating individual symptoms. Of course, one must sometimes settle for palliative measures and focus on symptoms when a definitive diagnosis cannot be established.
