You may want to try posting in this section.....s and p is mostly people who have sz themselves. Iím also going to say that drug induced psychosis is an entirely different thing than sz and his docs may have been misled into categorizing him sz. Medicines typically work for sz without drugs or alcohol.

I guess Iím concerned on how you plan to leave. Does he have disability like ssdi It sounds like he would qualify although you might have to apply on his behalf. Since youíre married I suspect they would garnish your wages for his support in the event of a divorce so itís to your benefit to get him some independent income. Talk to a lawyer about what to do, Iím not sure legally that you arenít obligated to care for him in some way...ie itís not like you can just pack up and walk out without being negligent.
