Schizophrenia is a surprisingly vague diagnosis, at least here in the modern US where I live. I don't think Schizophrenia is quite so ridiculously vague and broad as it was in the 50s and 60s, but...

to be honest, a lot of times the label says more about race, social class, education level, and level of employment (if any) than it does about the symptoms, per se.

which isn't to say that the people so labeled do not need some sort of treatment and/or the whole thing is pseudoscience. Its just...

I could see lots of Schizophrenics prone to bad depression and probably the ones more inclined to drug-induced dysphoria benefiting from a stimulant of some sort. I think the old school solution was Ritalin, back when uppers for Schizophrenia was an OK practice.

these days...I think the Vyvanse people may have funded a small study on low doses of Vyvanse in carefully selected, stable Schizophrenics, but...

other than that, I think uppers in Schizophrenia is an old practice many now frown upon, unless its Wellbutrin or perhaps Provigil now and then. I could be wrong, of course.
