In MDD it is six months for full remission, DSM code 296.26. For bipolar full remission is 6 months, DSM code 296.06. There is not a DSM code for remission in the DSM 4 that I can find for schizophrenia . I would suspect that 6 months is pretty standard for remission in many illnesses.

Full remission means no symptoms in the context of MI.

Do people in remission have to take medication? I'm probably coming off Abilify soon and I'm scared my psychotic symptoms will come back - does it count as remission if the meds caused a lack of hallucinations/delusions in the first place?

Full remission means no symptoms not no meds.
