> So according to that definition, I have both negative symptoms and depression. That would make most sense. For most of my life I have been depressed and socially anxious/withdrawn but never psychotic until I tried MAOI. So the negative symtoms came ontop of that after I was psychotic.

What negative symptoms appeared after the psychosis?

For many people, the negative symptoms actually precede psychosis, sometimes by a long time.

> It would be best if doctors found a cause rather than treating symtoms.

Of course.

> Like they do with NMDA receptor encephalitis. An underlying issue. I bet you that most of the time there is something going on beneath the symptoms. Psychiatrists admit that they are not treating root causes most of the time.

If the disorder/disease is understood, such as with Parkinson's disease, it is a neurological and not psychatric condition. So psychiatrists are kind of doomed to treat patients without knowledge of the underlying causes.
