Schizophrenia or Wilson's disease?

Posted by scribble'ntweak on October 18, 2004, at 18:10:59

I have been diagnosed schizophrenic and have been taking 10 mg. Abilify successfully for over a year. Recently I had a systemic heavy metal test done and it came back with very high copper levels. I looked up copper toxicity in the Merck Manual and found that it says something like "the symptoms of high copper levels are indistinguishable from schizophrenia." If this is true, should I be treated for Schizophrenia or Wilson's disease? The treatment for the schizophrenia is working...wouldn't it not be if it were Wilson's disease?
