Do schizophrenics KNOW when they're going into psychosis or have warning signs before they go into psychosis?

Only answer if you know please. Thanks! You're awesome.

    Typically no. That is the nature of the illness where they can become deluded by obsessive thoughts or hallucinations that they have a break from reality. That is why it is called a psychotic break. The ability to know what is real and not real becomes distorted. they may have moments of clarity in the psychosis but it can be very transient. When they return to reality due to medication they may have no memory or partial memory of their actions and thoughts while they were in the break

    Some do, others don't.

    Seriously, it varies by person. But most don't.

    Often, they could be suffering from delusions or hallucinations and think they are real. They are sick and don't realize it.
