I confess that I haven't read Bleuler (who coined the term "schizophrenia"). According to DSM, it does not have to be very severe at all -- that's why I may qualify for a diagnosis.

But schizophrenia *is* considered the most severe and chronic psychotic disorder.

Yes, drugs lack precision, at least unless they are injected right into the brain. Meanwhile, psychodynamics can't keep up the function of a brain that's dead and rotting -- unless you're God or something!
