Psychiatrist 's  Response
Graves disease is a sing of abnormal throid function. If your paranoid schizophrenia is drug induced, it must get improved by self over the period once you stop the offending drug. I advice you to check your thyroid function test. stop the offending drug that caused you schizophrenia and consult the nearest psychiatrist as well as endocrinologist.
