Thinking1 D- Severe Negative Symptoms.

Female gender, Increased age, and positive symptoms are considered good prognosis for Schizophrenia patient.
Not sure about the association of Poor Socioeconomic status and functional capacity decline in SZP.

High Yield Fact (related to above Question):

Any improvement in "Negative symptoms" that can be gained from atypical antipsychotics is very important -->because the long term outcome of SZP is more closely correlated with severity of negative symptoms, then it is with severity of positive symptoms.

(One of the reason for using Atypical over Typical antipsychotics)
